And don't even mention Halo CE Anniversary. Not only was that a simple graphics tune-up, but they had an exclusive (extremely small team) working on that release since Bungie's days.
From 2007 (Halo 3) to today they released 5 Halo games, not including Halo: CE. That's pretty close to 1 a year. In their defense some of the games they released weren't standard shooters, but the "Call of Duty treatment" can also refer to a series that's proven profitable, so it's going to continue regardless of plotline necessity.
Halo 4 is the start of a new trilogy.
