Halo 4 considered but Reach story more appealing

Brian Jarrad has spoken how Bungie briefly considered doing a 'Halo 4' game which could have been a story set after the events of Halo 3:

"Even before the idea to build a game based around Reach came about, a lot of other concepts were explored, up to and including a proper 'Halo 4,' where Master Chief was going to wake up from cryo-sleep and we were going to tell that story."

Jarrard went on to explain that the idea never made it out of pre-production, saying, "it just wasn't as interesting to the team to just pick up where that left off and all the baggage that came with it."

I'm picking this is exactly what Microsoft is going to do however and that 343 Industries will do the Halo 4 story of what happened to him and Cortana. The Chief is too central to the Franchise to not have him in another Halo game (in that Reach supposedly doesn't have him in it, ODST did not). Three games without the Chief would be taking away too much from the core of Halo.
