Halo series stats released by Microsoft, 46 million games sold
Microsoft has released the series stats for the Halo franchise, and as expect, the numbers are mind boggling. We know for a fact that Halo 3 itself did 14 million copies since 2007, but the entire series has sold 46 million since the launch of Halo: Combat Evolved on the original Xbox.
“Halo is a $3 billion blockbuster franchise which has shaped entertainment history and defined a generation of gamers,” VP for interactive entertainment, Don Mattrick, said.
“From the world’s first ever red-carpet premieres for a video game to sending a man strapped to a jet-pack 50-foot above London’s iconic skyline, Halo launches have continually broken the mould and we are back with a colossal bang for Halo 4,”
That’s not all Halo: Reach, Bungie’s last game as the developer of Halo, generated $200 million in revenue in its opening week alone. People have collectively logged in over 5 billion hours on Xbox Live which makes it one of the most played series on the network.
So what do you think about this, isn’t it massive?
