Why annual sequels might be killing your favorite franchises

You might be enjoying Halo 4 and Black Ops II for now, but these yearly installments might actually be hurting your favorite series in the long run. (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Halo 4, Industry, PS3, WWE 13, Xbox 360)

To be fair, titles like Halo Wars and Halo remakes don't really count. In the same vein that a Mario spin-off wouldn't count as a new Mario game. Otherwise you could call Mario what a... quad-annual franchise? No stagnation there.

Halo 4 took four years to make, so unless Halo 5 is already well in development I can't see the next one until 2015.

Annual games aren't killing anything. It's gamers who buy them yearly are.
