Bungie: 3 Million people expected to play Reach beta

Posted By | On 21st, Apr. 2010

Bungie community manager Brian Jarrard stated that the studio expects at least 3 million people to play the Halo: Reach Beta when it kicks off in a week-and-a-half from now.

“My expectation is it could be upwards of 3 million people,” said Jarrard to The Seattle Times in an interview. “I think that’s a fairly conservative estimate. Certainly there will never be a console beta of this magnitude.”

In the interview, Chris Carney, multiplayer design lead, added that the game’s near enough done.

“It’s pretty close to done,” he said. “We still absolutely will tweak things after the beta, based on all [stat] information.”

Halo: Reach is due for release this fall with the Multiplayer beta set to start on May 3 on Xbox Live.

Multiplayer off the beaten track?
