Halo: Reach to be 2010's biggest seller?

Industry types say so in new GI.biz survey.

The games industry's most luminescent luminaries are predicting Halo: Reach will be the biggest selling title of 2010.

They were voting in the annual GamesIndustry.biz Network Survey, which is open to all 9900 industry professionals in the network. Final Fantasy XIII is tipped to be the second-best selling game, followed by StarCraft II and new instalments in the Call of Duty and FIFA series.

GamesIndustry.biz also asked survey participants to name a 'dark horse' for 2010. Alan Wake came in at number one with Heavy Rain in second place. Other suggestions included Darksiders, Split Second, Brink and APB.

The majority of industry professionals are predicting a decline in the popularity of the music, first-person shooter and real-time strategy genres next year. However, they reckon things are looking up for casual and social gaming, action adventure titles and MMOs.
