Halo 4 is Microsoft Studios’ Best Seller Ever

From Joystiq:

“Halo 4 is the “best-selling Microsoft Studios title ever in the U.S. market,*” performing better than Halo 3 did during its fiscal launch year, according to ol’ Microsoft. That all-important asterisk denotes that claim as being “according to Microsoft retail sales sell-through data for each respective fiscal year.”

Presumably, this means that Halo 4 has also outperformed other Microsoft Studios launches, such as Fable 3 or Forza Motorsport 4. It’s no wonder, then, that Microsoft has decided to expand the Halo series’ current “Reclaimer” trilogy into a “saga,” a term that translates to “as many games as we feel like” or “why on Earth would we ever stop,” depending on the dictionary you’re using.”

On a side note, I’d like to point out that Halo 3 was the most played game on XBox 360 for three years in a row after its launch. It fended off multiple Call of Duty games on the charts. Halo 4, while it has been a big money maker for Microsoft, hasn’t been able to even stay in the top 5 on the XBox Live charts just months after release. I hope in the future they make another Halo game with staying power.
