"Halo 4" officially released on Tuesday, Nov. 6, in what turned out to be the biggest launch in the history of the "Halo" franchise. 343 Industries took on full development behind "Halo 4," which is shown above, making this the first "Halo" title that has not been influenced by Bungie. Now that the game has launched, it has been reported that this title has sold a total of 3.1 million units during its opening day.

As reported by VgChartz, "Halo 4" had a massive first the launch day, which greatly surpassed previous titles. It has been stated that 1.9 million copies sold were from US territories. In comparison to past "Halo" titles, "Halo 3" sold a total of 3.8 million copies during its first week, while "Halo: Reach" sold a total of 3.7 million during its first week of release. Projections insists that "Halo 4" has a very good chance of selling about 4 million copies by the end of its first week of release.

So much for Halo being a dying franchise like so many people here tried to make people believe.

Thank you 343.

The media articles about the demise of platform gaming always seem to feature quotes from people from Zynga.

It's the best Halo. Finally one that surpasses Halo: Combat Evolved. The levels, the art direction, the enemy encounters, the antagonist, the graphics, the story, etc. Just incredible.

3.1 million day-one copies sold is a HUGE number for an exclusive. Trying to compare that number to BLOPS 2 day-one sales is utterly pointless due to the fact that BLOPS will be sold on multiple platforms.

Not pointless...halo is a Xbox exclusive, you can see how many copies black ops 2 sold for Xbox 360.

the difference is that Halo has always been just on Xbox, it would get way more if it was a multiplatform game!!

Well obviously. But black ops 2 for Xbox 360 will double the sales of halo day one no problem.

Go enjoy your casual Blops 2 with your 50 Cent beats.

Why post in a thread about Halo 4 if you don't like the game? Are you just wanting some attention? You're making yourself look like a tool.
