It is clear that some of you want to see this game fail. That’s kind of pathetic.
But here‘s a thing. This game will always have ups and downs when it comes to active players, because only a very dedicated minority plays it all the time. As we all know, it shines as a cooperative experience and it is simply not a game you just launch and play whenever you like. Speaking from a personal experience, I play it occasionally, when me and my friends have our schedules cleared up for this game And sometimes it can take weeks to do that. The most important part is that we keep coming back to it, year after year, because it is an amazing experience. And as long as MS and Rare continue to support it, I will come back to it, especially when they drop new content. Also, I’m pretty sure MS feels that it is successful enough - otherwise they would just let it die.
