Outsold predecessor in respective launch year.

Halo 4 is Microsoft Studios’ best-selling game in the U.S., Microsoft has announced.

Microsoft’s official blog, Xbox Wire, reports that the game outsold its numerical predecessor, Halo 3, on “sales during each respective launch year.”

Developed by 343 Industries – a studio Microsoft built specifically to take over the Halo mantle after the departure of Bungie – Halo 4 was said to be the first part of the “Reclaimer” trilogy, which Microsoft later described as a “saga.”

A new Halo game was also announced for Xbox One at E3.
