Halo 4 Playlist Tracking Shows Major Decline In Online Activity
Posted on Monday, October 14 @ 08:02:01 PST by Alex_OsbornIt has been nearly a year sinceHalo 4launched, and over that time, the game's online portion has struggled to find its footing.
The chart below (courtesy ofReddit) provides a visual representation of just how small theHalo 4user base has become. Considering how popular and pivotal the Halofranchise has been in the online space in years prior, it's shocking to see how drastic the drop-off has been.
I must confess, I too have fallen off theHalo 4bandwagon, despite loving the gamequite a bit. 343 Industries made a lot of changes to the Bungie's formula, ultimately speeding up the game, making it a bit more comparable to the likes ofCall of Duty.
I don't know about you, but I miss the simpler days ofHalo 2and3, when the game was a bit slower paced and more methodical. There weren't armor abilities, loadouts, or upgrades to worry about—just pureHalocompetitivegoodness.
WithHalo 3coming free viaGames With Gold in just a few days' time, let's hope the spike in numbers sends a signal 343i's way. As the folks at the studio work onHalo for Xbox One, you've got to imagine they're exploring ways to win back fans of the series. 343i, May I suggest you take the franchise back to its roots? Sometime less is more.
