Was talking to my friend about this earlier. Do you think or like the fact that this game might be called "Halo 4", followed by "Halo 5" and "Halo 6"? I just don't think they sound... hmm, good at all.
Or do you think they will give it a subtitle? Take for example, it's called "Halo: Forerunner", and then follow with "Halo: Forerunner 2" and "Halo: Forerunner 3"... Sounds better and is more creative than just being called Halo 4, 5, and 6.
What do you guys think?

I personally think they should simply keep it at Halo 4/5/6. This way it does a couple things: 1) attracts the majority of people the strayed away from the franchise due to ODST and Reach; 2) It goes back to the franchise name that attracts new players, one of the biggest reasons certain games sell so well is due to name recognition; and 3) It gives everyone hope that it will go back to the true Halo feel, such as Halo: CE story with aspects from Halo 2/3 multiplayer which could revolutionize FPS gameplay on multiple levels.
Something else, if 343i were to title it Halo 4: Reclaimer/2/3, would people not just say, "They are just copying COD4: MW/2/3!!" I personally do not care nor do I think the game title matters. I just hope that it is as epic as 343i makes it seem.
What if the title was just "Reclaimer"? Halo 4 is a good title but I'm not expecting the MC to deal with any of the ring installations he's not, but the franchise and universe is known as halo, so they're keeping it in the title. just like Halo Wars, Halo: Reach, and most of the books had nothing to do with the rings, but still had halo in the title.
