Why is this being called "Halo 4"?

^Well, if you are just adding up numbers, then you are at Halo 6.


It's the next one in the story line after Halo 3. I assumed 3 + 1 was simple enough.

It seems I was wrong.

No wonder it's socially acceptable to suck at math but not to be illiterate.

but 3+1+1=/= 4
Thank you for your astute and irrelevant observation.


Omg epic riposte, lol. The topic is now about this, please.

How about this then.

How about we get Halo 4 and not Reach 2. Because right now, we're getting Reach 2.

Because you play as halo in this game so its called halo

As someone mentioned earlier, what if they were going to use the Halo title and just sort of slide into a new one?

Something along the lines of:

Halo 4: Reclaimer (to indicate the beginning of the Reclaimer trilogy)
Reclaimer 2 (instead of Halo 5)
Reclaimer 3 (instead of Halo 6)

That can't be too terrible of an idea....right? I'll shut up now.

Now, if everyone is done being silly.

If brand recognition is the problem then do this for the next arc:

Halo 4: (Real Game Title)

then

(Real Game Title) 2

and so on. That title could be Forerunner, Master Chief, Cortana's Quest or some better idea. I don't care, but don't call it Halo. All of the Halos are destroyed.


When were the other six destroyed? I just know of Installation 04, the new 04, and the Ark.

This is even more Call of Duty.

Indeed... Ah, well. If they continue to call it Halo, I hope they at least find a way to involve the rings in this new trilogy (whether they be old, hidden, or newly created installations).
