I think it’s safe to say that a core Halo fanbase didn’t endorse or enjoy Halo Reach. With the talk of Halo 4 and the release date of Holiday 2012, we wonder about the Halo franchise. It would appear now that Halo has slipped behind Call of Duty. With Battlefield 3 coming, it is quite possible to see the Halo franchise drop to #3 on the popularity ratings. Halo Reach peaked fast. Halo 3 peaked and maintained a long lasting appeal. I think we can all hope for an amazing Halo 4 release. With 3D being somewhat possible and Kinect being more common, we wonder and also worry a bit about how the Halo 4 game engine will be.
