You can't really change the name of a well established series. Plus, they do at least mention the Halos in this.

I mean, even some of the Zelda games don't have Zelda in them at all.

Does every Jason movie take place on Friday the 13th? Do all the nightmares occur on Elm Street?

Halo Installation 03 in halo 4. You don't physically go on it but you go to a space station that recovered an artifact from the halo.

There has been a halo in every Halo game. (Not sure about Reach, don't care about Wars)

Halo 1 had a Halo in it.

Halo 2 had a Halo in it.

Halo 3 had a Halo AND the Ark.

Halo 4 is on a Shield World, another Forerunner creation. So it still makes some sense.

Halo sounds better than "Shield World", don't you think?

No only that but in the campaign Chief does hitch a ride on a ship that goes to the research station orbiting a Halo installation.

I'm amazed to see how longer we got without someone pointing out the obvious troll TC is, he si obviously well aware of the reason, otherwise I would have to assume there are some challenges his mind can't take :/

How many examples can people name of franchises that keep the name just because it is stablished?
