THE BUZZ: Analysts Nielsen claim that Halo 4 and Assassin’s Creed III are the most anticipated console titles of 2012, according to data that they have compiled.
Nielsen compiles its charts using eight key factors, including public awareness and purchase interest. Based on these factors the firm has ranked Halo 4 and Assassin’s Creed III as the most anticipated titles of 2012.
These are closely followed by Max Payne 3, Madden NFL 13 and Resident Evil 6. The full chart can be found here.
EGM’s TAKE: We completely agree with this assessment, both games will be huge upon release. We would have to give the edge to Assassin’s Creed III however, basically due to it being multi-platform and as a result having a bigger audience. One thing to take into consideration is that this chart isn’t tracking games such as Grand Theft Auto V or the next Call of Duty title as their official release dates haven’t been nailed down, and technically Call of Duty hasn’t even been announced yet.
