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.

@Mr Puggsly Nope, it's not one of the
most popular online games. Halo 4 has
had days where it's population peak
barely brakes 10k. That's not
concurrent players throughout the
day...that's the max population in a
day. After two months Halo 4 was below
50k and after six months it was down to
30k. It hasn't been above 20k in about
a year. After a year it was behind four
call of duty games on xbox live (Ghosts,
BO2, MW3, BO1), and COD itself is
declining which only makes it look
worse.

In comparison, Halo 3 was
still #1 after one year ahead of Cod5
and Cod4 and in it stayed #2 its entire
third year behind MW2. Even Reach had
much higher populations. Someone on
NeoGaf did the math and from Reach to
Halo 3 the population totals are down
96% from the same time frame. That's
incredible when you consider the sales
really are not that different. It had
record launch sales, but it was
universally HATED by longtime fans. Halo
is my #1 FPS franchise and I will be
purchasing the Master Chief Collection
on Xbox One. This game sucked. In fact
it was so bad that it made me like Call
of Duty Black Ops 2 and Ghosts which in
reality are mediocre at best. Halo 4 is
the greatest example of how far the AAA
industry has fallen. Gears Judgement is
another.

@ teamsilent13 - Yet its still one of
the most popular online games on home
consoles. Surely that's worth
something? I'm guessing it still has a
couple hundred thousand plays a
day.

A growing install base doesn't
guarantee increased sales for an IP. Go
do some research.

By a failure I mean it had the worst
online population for the series and
proportionally to the console install
base it sold worst for the series.

@Dadrik Record launch sales for the
series (due to hype and broken
promises). The game is a failure from a
consumer perspective. The Xbox 360 has
such a huge install base compared to
2007 it should have sold double what
Halo 3 did. Also, the cheap GOTY edition
with all DLC boosted the slowing sales.
It's still a complete disappointment
from every halo fan I know.
