Even I can't pretend that they haven't lost a significant percentage of the old hardcore Halo fanbase, and the lack of campaign theater (and the lack of Forge and BTB at launch, the lack of a bunch of old multiplayer game modes, etc.) contributes to that.

I think you are overstating the importance of campaign theatre. The real reason so many of us old hardcore Halo fans are gone is simply that the new games have stupid stories, and haven't really moved forward in any meaningful way mechanically. Halo 5 is pretty much the same game as Halo 2. There just aren't many variations of the Halo formula that haven't been done before.
