It’s been rumored for a while that Halo 3 will be showing it’s face at E3 on Tuesday but IGN have now reported it as fact.

The site says they got their info from "independent sources who recently spoke with Microsoft executives", and they’ve apparently spoken of a two-minute trailer.

The Xbox 360 addition to the massively popular franchise seems like a likely candidate for Microsoft’s main showpiece as Sony will be showing off their PS3 goods.

Microsoft have promised to make E3 trailers and demos available on Xbox Live Martketplace as the conference goes on so it could well appear there.
