In Response To: Re: Thoughts on the Gamasutra article. (Quirel)

: The thing is, Halo 4 was already massively expensive to create. It was by far
: the most expensive game Microsoft has ever made, according to Phil
: Spencer. It doesn't make business sense to extend Halo 4's development out
: an extra year.

To further your point, consider the long view - if you want Halo to be a keystone franchise for the next 10 years, then letting 343i get one under their belt on the XBox 360 sets them up pretty nicely for the 720 (Fusion?). They probably broke even (at least!), got 343i off the ground and running, and are now positioned nicely for a next-gen H5 release in 2015.

Halo 4 isn't Halo 1 or even Halo 3, but it is still a pretty damn good game, and more than worth the $60 bucks I paid for it.
