This is the most failed attempt at "Halo is dead" I have ever seen. You know how many people play MCC ?
Are you still using the playerbase of Halo 5(a game that came out in 2015) as a metric ? Then again I wouldnt expect much from someone who praises Fallout 76.
Halo is dead. By assuming that somewhere near 40k players play fallout 76 a day, where pc is the most played platform, and where Fallout is ranked similarly to Halo 5 on Xbox Live. It would be within the ballpark of at best 10,000 players a day. That’s pretty shit.

We do know how many players play MCC on Steam. It’s 30 day average of concurrent players is under 5k.


343 are hacks and Rian Johnson’d the IP.

Stop all updates to Fallout 76 and look back after 3 years. They hardly updated Halo 5 since 2017 and it still has more players than Fallout 76
Also, Halo 5 is not metric of how many people care about Halo right now

Barely. Those lists are top heavy. The difference between being ranked 44th and 46th (or wherever they’re at today) is almost trivial. Plenty of older games show their face on those lists that do not get updates.

Their supposed “best” IP being offered for free on gamespass should be ranked higher if it was actually any good.

Both Halo 5 and 343 are garbage.

These days the credibility of a random NeoGaf poster is same as the comment section of YouTube console war channels.
Dont worry you will get the obligatory automatic response from MS "Most players ever for X Game" since it basically $15, FTP with a new graphics card or bundled into some package. No one is paying $60 for that series ever again. And it will be DOA in a week after release.

Almost everything above Halo 5 is still being updated or atleast came in 2018. Its even above Witcher 3 and Call of Duty WW II.

Im back and forth, working at the moment. Its simple facts, every shooter outside Cod is basically DOA after releasse. Even the years of PC hype for Halo MC died 2 weeks after its release. It barely has a player base now. But its fine, you can enjoy it, but it will not change the facts. No one outside the few, care.

DOA a week after release. Boring.
Drive by posts such as these do nothing but antagonize and bait.

You elaborated more with following posts, but what are you trying to gain in the process?

Move along from the topic and create your own thread if you want to break down in depth of why you feel it’s regressing in such a manner.

There’s two versions of Witcher 3 on there. Oh, it’s one spot ahead of WW2. Lol. Grasping at straws is an art form it seems.

I‘m glad you actually got to see where Halo 5 does chart tho. Good to know you can see for yourself how pitifully their supposed flagship game performs.

It has little to do with content updates. If Halo 5 had such great of a multiplayer as the few believers say, it would actually be played by its fan base on the only platform it’s available for; its own platform, while free to its users on gamespass, to an install base of the size of the N64’s.

And yea MCC on PC did indeed die 2 weeks after release. Just because people bought the launcher and Reach for 10$. “Look Halo is back!” Meanwhile no one actually gives a shit.

Both Halo 5 and 343 are trash and effectively Rian Johnson’d the IP.

Halo Infinite will launch for Xbox One, Windows 10, and the newly announced Xbox Project Scarlett in holiday 2020, publisher Microsoft and developer 343 Industries announced at the Microsoft E3 2019 press conference.

Halo Infinite continues the Halo 5: Guardians storyline and takes the franchise in “ambitious, unexpected directions.” Here are the latest details, via Microsoft:

Just trying to be brief, to the point. Its basic trend and reality analysis. FPS TDM and CTF are old news and anything that tries, no matter with a name attached outside CoD is DOA.

Opinions as facts 👍

CS, Rainbow 6 say hello. Shit Halo Reach on pc hit a 1 - 2 million peak pc.

Run along now with your alt account. Not even ballzy enough to troll with your real account.

Edit: How can i forget Fortnite and apex legends..... silly troll

I hope the multiplayer maps and combat are amazing this time. Nearly hated/despised Halo 4 for what it was tbh

Blatant lie.

It’s all time peak player count was 93,000 at release. I mean you can look this shit up. Two months later and it averages under 5k concurrent players for its last 30 days.

People have said Halo is dead since I can remember and every time a new Halo releases it sells millions of copies. Sort of odd for a dead franchise, eh?

This time they might have gotten it right. But man, Halo 4 was a slap in the face. Halo 5 looked pretty damn boring as well. Not much different from Halo 5

I'm really interested to see the gameplay and the maps

Halo 5 MP was a fresh step in the right direction. Halo 4 on the other hand, not so much. But the campaign for Halo 4 was much better than 5’s.

The MCC on Steam sold roughly 2mil copies in its first 2 days, and is still currently in the top 10 on the 'Global Top Sellers' list. How anyone can make out its dead is beyond me, are people just buying it to fill up their game collection?.
Sure its averaging 5-6k a day at the moment, but thats just Reach, people seem to forget that and just say 'MCC', its currently just Reach.
People are obviously buying the whole package and just waiting it out for their favorite Halo game to release.

Yeah i mean i bought the whole MCC, but i'm waiting for Halo 1-3. I played Reach and finished its campaign over a couple of days, and havent touched it since. People are obviously doing the same thing
Its hilarious how haters are trying to make out PC gamrs dont care. The MCC was the no.1 most wishlisted game on Steam, unitl freaking Cyberpunk knocked it down to no.2. It has 62k user reviews, which would be huge for a brand new hyped AAA release (Your Ass Creeds, Far Crys, etc usually land in the 20k-40k user reviews after a year or two, The MCC has 62k in 3 months). The game continues to be in the Top 15, and often Top 10 on thre Global sellers list.
Haters you may hate Halo, but dont pretend its dead.

I dont disagree with the sentiment but bolded cant be right. I think you mean 100k. Dota and CSGO dont cross a million concurrent. I think the highest CSGO ever did was 900k yesterday.

The 1 - 2 million number was specifically for halo reach when it released. Saying shit like "its doa" cuz its not cod is just dumb. It was posted on here when it released.

Idk exact numbers for the others but know they have a pretty hardcore following too.

Halo doing those numbers on its steam launch clearly proves there's plenty of interest in the franchise, whether or not we think 343 is a joke.

This has nothing to do with HALO but MS, are they still making 2 different consoles? I think that’s a pretty stupid idea.

Step into 2020, please. This will be the first Halo game that will be available, and playable, on all Xbox one devices, a launch title for Series X, and on PC day 1. It will feature full cross platform play, which means the community will be much, much larger than any iteration of the past.

Cross play changes everything, not just for Halo but for gaming as a whole.

I dont think there will be PC-Console crossplay. They didnt have it in MCC either, its unfair for those who play on a controller.

I also liked Halo 5. Is it OK if we do? It also has a score of 84 on metacritic which is also decent. It means people liked it.
It means game journalists liked it, not the consumer themselves. As you know many of these so called journalists can and usually get bribed. Open critic is more a score on what the community likes

COD MW says hi. It’s not only Xbox-PC, but PS4-Xbox-PC. It’s doing great. And you think Activision has done it already as we speak, yet MS won’t with their own first party title, on their own platforms? 🤣

Well ok, then it was 83%... Still a good game.
