Frankie (OuterWorldVoice on GAF) said this about the news:

I wouldn't get too excited. Very minor.
and

The fact that it's Conan related is sort of major to me as a proponent of TEAM COCO, but the news itself won't be world-shattering, just important.
Those quotes found here and here.

If I had to speculate, I'd guess a release date announcement plus a few details.

edit: Found this on Twitter, supports a release date announcement:


edit 2: credits go to Sean for finding this:

Polygon/The Verge spoiling the "surprise" - November 6th release date they say.

No other details are being offered, but we've heard from reliable sources close to Microsoft that the team may have finalized a release date for Master Chief's return: Tuesday, November 6th, 2012.

We've also heard that it'll be announced before noon ET tomorrow. Though development cycles tend to fluctuate, locking down a pre-Black Friday release date this early gives Microsoft's marketing team ample time to plan for what we'd suspect will be one its biggest game launch this year. Will Conan and the gang be announcing the launch date? We'll know soon enough.

Just saw this on the twitters.

I'm hyped.

Edit: Too late Frankie. I've already got my Halo jammies laid out so I can wear them while watching Conan tomorrow night.

Crossing my fingers for a full multiplayer reveal including multiple gameplay videos, trailers as well as interviews with some 343 members. Musical guest will probably be Neil Davidge leading a full orchestra to a few songs from the Halo soundtrack.

Ah damn, that sounds way better than what I was thinking. Maybe I should update the OP.

What part of, "I wouldn't get too excited. Very minor." Did you not get? xD

I expect a release date confirmation at best.

Well I know Frankie very well. It's on days like this he tries to lull everyone to sleep only to blast them in the face afterwards. Classic Frankie tactic. You've been warned.

I think we'll find out the release date. Coco will storm on stage clad in Mjolnir armor, throw plasma grenades at the audience and say "September 18, motherfuckers".
"April 18, 2012! LOL JK!"

From the HaloGAF thread:

No. But tomorrow, I don't know. Literally no idea what will be on and what won't. I don't control Team CoCo. But I will be watching.
So I guess there will be some sort of studio tour thingy? Wouldn't mind that...

That just reminded me of the AWESOME studio tour Frankie once did over at Bungie. The one that starts out with the belt.

So good.

Agreed.

Late night TV, specifically Conan, is a dead format since most people in that demo are playing videogames, watching Netflix, farting about on YouTube. It's a very archaic model and it's smart that Conanco is taking a page from Jimmy Fallon in embracing the competition.

In the late 90s, high school/college students LOVED watching Conan, myself included. They didn't have unlimited streams of entertainment back then.

A true hit with the ladies if I ever saw one.

Believe in based Frankie.

This is a very interesting choice.

Anything that gives Conan more viewers is Great by me.

Wonder why they didn't do Fallon...

Release date...bah that's not news. We already know its coming out the same time the last 2 games came out...How people consider a release date news is beyond me.
