Cross, except for a PC port or 2 back in the mid 2000's.

Mega franchise...No other exclusive farnchise except for Super Mario and similar games have even come close to the sales of the Halo franchise last gen, over 41m game sales just on 360.

Yeah, I'm not sure what this guy is talking about... Halo is still a wildly popular franchise, and with the excitement of a new generation, Microsoft has a golden opportunity to reignite the franchise.

Speaking of the halo5 reveal, the muted response probably stems from the fact that all they did was announce that they are working on an xbox one halo game... We already knew that. There wasn't any gameplay or artwork to see, so people will hold their excitement until they can see what 343 is cooking.

As far as missing the opportunity to branch halo into other forms of media, there's no time like the present. If an iron man film can launch a bunch of B list marvel super hero's into the highest grossing movie franchise of all time, then surely some quality Halo productions will do wonders for expanding the already massive halo fan base.

the author is a fuckwit. Halo is a mega franchise no matter how you look at it. You tell which other game has a larger library of novels, graphic novels, comic books and short animated films....?

im currently nearing the end of the 2nd novel in the forerunner saga by Greg Bear. And just ordered the 3rd book in the Kilo 5 trilogy by Karen Travis. All brilliant books better than the games.

Halo is a mega franchise and a mega story universe. Bungie really created a brilliant game universe. which is why im also so excited for destiny.
