For about a year after Halo 3 people thought there would come a Halo 4.
In fact, Bungie had planned on creating Halo 4 where Master Chief would awake from his cryo-sleep and kill all the aliens you could ever dream of. However Bungie decided that they would keep our beloved Master Chief frozen so they could pursue Halo Reach.
“We don’t want to open up a whole bunch of doors that we’re not going to close. By the end of this, it’s all going to come to a nice, neat finish, and if people want to then go play the Halo trilogy, I think they’ll have a better understanding of what’s going on, but it’s not required at all.”
I think in the end it was a smart move on Bungie’s part to not pursue Halo 4 as we will probably see another developer work on it with the possibility of even more Halo games in the pipeline after the 4th.
