Bungie will no longer make halo games move over your nostalgic blindness, popularity is not a measure of financial success.
Because Halo 5 has microtransactions, which none of the older Halos had. And that still doesn't change the fact that it was less popular than all of the Halos before it. That doesn't change the fact that Halo has declined in popularity since the end of the Bungie-era. You gonna move the goalpost, again?
Yes least sold but that not how the real world works, financially it yielded microsoft good revenue within its first week.
This community I don't know it does something that just makes you grasp for whatever delusions you all have and make it seem like you're right but you're wrong Halo 5 was great not quite great but not quite bad either to hear this nonsense constantly constantly owe the armor was bad but the gameplay was bad like seriously I've seen many game in era for almost 35 years but community is by far so toxic.It was also the least-sold main Halo game in the franchise. You need to face the fact that a majority of the fanbase were put off by the new direction and didn't like that 343i was essentially trying to jettison all that came before it. The reactions I've seen across the web (and anecdotal evidence from my friends during the reveal) show positive reception for a return to form.
People wanted Halo back. I love how you guys who defended Halo 4 and 5's changes to EVERYTHING say "the majority of the community doesn't care. 343i can do what they want," but now that they actually, y'know LISTEN TO THEIR FANBASE FINALLY, it's wrong?
really, so why did Halo 3 and Reach, hold their population, far longer than 4 or 5 did? Hell it took Reach releasing to finally kill off Halo 3's population, Yet after about 6 months Halo 4 and 5 were dropped off. Halo 5 only really still lingers on, because of the forge mode and custom games browser, if it were not for those 2 factors, Halo 5 would be a ghost town, buy now. It is clear as rain that the older Halos are more desireable and should be the future of the franchise, not Halo 4 and 5. I want so badly for 343 to come out and state that Halo Infinite is the true sequel to Halo 3, and that 4 and 5 were "What If" stories. This is the first time in 7 years that Halo actually looks like Halo. That should be something to be praised about, not looked at as if its some means of going backwards.
