The Halo franchise is popular. That’s pretty much fact. But can it outsell games like God of War III and Call of Duty 7 in 2010? Microsoft seems to think so.
Director of Xbox marketing Stephen McGill told CVG that Halo: Reach will take the series “to an entirely new level”, something he hopes will draw new players to the franchise.
“It’s an exciting time for Halo fans and we’re thrilled by the response from trailer shown at the VGAs last month which was phenomenal.
“Our hope for Halo: Reach is to be the biggest title of 2010 not only for Xbox, but across all platforms – a forecast which has been mirrored by industry professionals.”
Is the power of Halo that strong? Who knows. It’ll certainly sell, but it’s going up against some true heavy hitters.
