Halo 4 will undoubtedly be a great game, that much is certain. However the Halo franchise is beginning to fall into the same trap that Call of Duty has now died in... Consumers will only buy the same game so many times. Do some research and you will find that originally, one of the key directors of Halo: Reach was supposed to also be Key in creating Halo 4. A Bungie employee. He has now quit the development team because while he wanted to try and add something new to the game, Microsoft has chosen to just stick with making very minor changes. So in Summary, Halo 4 will be good, but mostly the same... the equivlent of a $60 map pack, Halo 5 will probably have better graphics, but identical gameplay, and as will 6. The place where Halo wins over a franchise like CoD is backstory. Microsoft/Bungie didn't have an entire series of books written for no reason, any avid reader knows that Halo has one of the deepest plot lines of most video games and they will have no problem creating new, interesting campaigns, however i fear the multiplayer and general gameplay will remain rigid for the rest of the franchise's existance
