A quick look at the online playerbase for Halo 4 contradicts any claims of it being one of the world's biggest videogame franchises. Maybe they can claw back some fans with Halo 5, though?

Destiny may hit a little on the franchise. Don't take me wrong but after the departure of Bungie they are just milking it. And apparently more than usual.

Time will tell. Anyway just by looking at some of the features of Destiny such as "Highly costumizable weapons", we can see Bungie's touch on it. What 343 did was adding more weapons ,more armors and more vehicles to Halo.

an online playerbase count 1 year after release for 1 iteration of the series has nothing to do with halo being a franchise. $3 billion in game sales and 50 mill + copies sold ( a feat not many game series have accomplished) is proof that halo is one of the worlds biggest franchises in sales and popularity

Yes because they base all video games on the online playerbase. The peak in halo 4 was around 200k even though they sold millions of copies. And here comes captain obvious "Not everyone plays online" ...

If you look at sales it is one of the biggest. Its the xbox biggest exclusive to but COD is the biggest game out there at the moment.

loooool...it is one of the world's biggest videogame franchise.
-8 Halo games
-13 Novels
-Tons Halo comics
-Tons Halo artbooks, Encyclopedia
-Miniseries(Halo legends and Forward onto Dawn)

The Halo universe is so big its being made into a TV series by Steven Spielberg.

Even its miniseries Halo 4: Forward onto dawn got nominated for an emmy.

You can't judge a franchise based on its online popularity(which isn't even bad to begin with).

This is going to be awesome, I love Halo as they always find away to give the fans more stories before the next game is out.
