Looks like Microsoft’s push for exclusive content last year paid off- contrary to wha many had feared, it sounds as though Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, Halo 5: Guardians, and Forza Motorsport 6 have all sold over a million units each worldwide.

“2015 was a monumental year for Xbox – the biggest in our history – and we owe it all to our gaming community,” said Microsoft. “We saw record global engagement and sales fuelled by high demand for our greatest games line-up and hardware and accessories like the best-selling Xbox One Gears of War: Ultimate Edition Bundle and our Elite Controller,” Microsoft stated.

Microsoft did not give us exact sales numbers for these games, though they did note that their performance, as well as the launch of the New Xbox One Experience and Xbox One’s backwards compatibility initiative, pushed Xbox One sales. The system is currently still tracking ahead of the Xbox 360 at this point in their respective lives, making the Xbox One the fastest selling Xbox console in history.

It’s good to hear the games did well, particularly Forza, which many had feared had bombed; that said, the number does seem to be low for Halo 5, and if 1 million units sold is the most we’ll get in way of conformation about that game’s sales from Microsoft, then I have a sneaking suspicion that it may in fact have under performed.

      Yes, shame on me! I should have known better to trust their lies!

    I don’t think Halo is having any difficulty pushing respectable number’s. The line “all exclusives have sold more than a million” is likely lowballed to match the lowest performing title.

    They could be including the free copies of Halo 5, Forza 6, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Gears of War Remaster that were bundled as sales which is misleading but I wouldn’t be suprised coming from Microsoft.

    I would argue that one million is still under performingly low, especially if they’re including physical and digital when Gears of War and Forza 6 are about five months old and Halo 5 is coming on three months old.

      “They could be” and “I would argue” in other words you are just guessing like always but act is if you where telling the truth, the facts, well that’s so you TrollBotMK1 so its not a surprise.

      Keep in mind that “over a million” just means that 1,000,000 is the minimum number sold. As far as we know, Halo 5 could have sold 4 million or more.

    It took them this long Lmao btw one million for a new halo game is a flop
