Game Overview

Halo 4 is a first-person shooter game developed by 343 Industries exclusively for the Xbox 360. The seventh installment in the Halo series, and the fourth major title, it was later released on Xbox One as part of the Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

The game begins 4 years after the ending of Halo 3, and marks the return of the Master Chief, a cybernetically-enhanced supersoldier.  Set mainly on a Forerunner planet, where Master Chief encounters the collection of alien races known as the Covenant and ancient warriors of the Forerunner empire known as the Prometheans, Master Chief is accompanied by the artificial intelligence construct Cortana.

Maybe so Puggsly, but it doesn't change
the fact that Halo 4 killed the Halo
series. Halo 4 was stuck at about 20k
just a few months after release and
never improved even after the cheaper
GOTY edition with all DLC included. 343i
threw every bone at fans during Halo 4
in hopes of getting people to play and
it didn't work. Halo 4 had the worst
player retention in the series (time
played per session) and the lowest
concurrent population and fastest
dropoff. That was coming off the largest
sales at launch for the series. Halo 4
was a failure from any respectable halo
fan. Halo 4 didn't just kill itself,
but it killed the past games population
and Halo 5's sales. COD had four games
above Halo 4 by the end of the year,
with MW2 just behind it. Halo 3 was #1
or #2 throughout its entire lifecycle
until Reach. Reach hurt Halo, and Halo 4
dug it into the ground.

I went online today to see how the
population is doing. It was around 4,500
this afternoon.

A lot of people still
play 7th gen Halo games between the 360
releases and MCC.

If it hits 10 million sales, it will be
the worst game 10 million seller :-)

This seems over tracked even if digital
is included. According to NPD report I
read anyway. Trying to figure out the
sales for Halo 4 and Reach is a little
difficult because of inconsistencies.
