Halo 4 is dying.

[url=http://halocharts.com/2012/chart/totalpopulation/all]Source[/url] What do you think about this? Does anyone remember, if the population was more kind with Reach? [Edited on 11.25.2012 11:07 AM PST]

  • Halo 4 topped the charts right before the next CoD came out. So, Halo 4 is in a dip, but it is not dying.

  • For a Halo title, it is indeed a little off-putting that it doesn't even reach 200k on a sunday. However, that doesn't have anything to do with it's quality. The circumstances are simply different. This goes back to the fact that Halo is not the indisputable champion of console gameplay anymore as it was back in the 2000s. A lot more competition is on the market right now and it just released right between it. That's why the number of players decreased so sudden in a few weeks. Halo 4 is not dying with 150000 players playing at once. [Edited on 11.25.2012 5:09 PM PST]

I applaud you for seeing thru the haze that no one else would dare glance at.[/quote] Partial Blame. 343i gets most of it.[/quote] So do we also place some blame on I.D. Software for the current state of FPS because they 'invented' the genre?

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] DarkVader9494 I think its funny how current Black Ops 2 population is more than Halo 4 has ever peaked, funny stuff.[/quote]I remember when the local fanboys were talking about how H4 was going to 'reclaim' its throne and about how they totally heard their two friends talking about how BLOPS II wasn't going to be that good so the game was going to flop.

  • [url=http://halocharts.com/2012/chart/dailypeakpopulation/all]Daily Peak Population[/url] Clearly, it fell after Black Ops 2, and now it's consistent. Blame CoD.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] WhiteFang0699 Halo 4 has to compete with Mw2, Cod 4, Mw3, Black Ops, and as of now Black Ops II. Yes it was popular, but it's not as popular as it is now.[/quote] Can we stop pretending that MW and MW2 are relevant? There's no one left besides children, cheaters, and BRs.
