Halo 4 vs Halo Reach Activity

I was looking at some recent activity lists for Halo when I noticed something interesting:

One year after the release of Halo 4, it currently sits at 12th on the Major Nelson Xbox Live Activity charts with Halo 3 ahead of it at 11th.

What’s interesting is that a year after the release of Halo Reach it was sitting at 4th on the Activity Chart and was 6th on the chart two years and a month after release approximately a week before Halo 4 came out. In that same chart from 2012, Halo 3 was 20th.

Even with the free release with Halo 3, it’s interesting to see the large decrease of Halo 4 and large increase of Halo 3 over the past year.
