Mirosoft has announced that its flagship franchise, Halo, has crossed 50 million units of sales worldwide, and that people have now spent over 6 billion hours playing Halo on Xbox Live.
Collectively, Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo Wars, Halo: Reach, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary and Halo 4 amount to eight games in the series, and eight games selling 50 million units is a very impressive number indeed.
Halo 4 was recently released, a few weeks back, and it was met with critical acclaim, as well as commercial success. It grossed $220 million in its first in its first 24 hours. Prior to Halo 4’s launch, Microsoft had sold 46 million Halo games, suggesting that so far, Halo 4 has sold around 4 million units.
