A lot of people are remembering Reach.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection’s splintered PC launch kicked off earlier this month when Halo: Reach launched on the platform for the first time ever. It became immediately clear – thanks to the game’s high player count numbers on Steam at launch – just how successful it was, and now, we have more figures that make it even clearer.
As per Steam Charts, Halo: Reach has already sold over 1 million (and under 2 million) units on Steam, within less than a week after release. That’s an impressive figure no matter how you look at it, especially for a game that is nearly a decade old by this point. It’s also worth pointing out that these are just the Stem figures. Halo: The Master Chief Collection is also available on PC via the Microsoft Store and Game Pass, so the total player count is probably much higher.
Some players have been facing issues with performance and audio, but 343 Industries are currently working on fixes. Meanwhile, the next leg of MCC’s PC launch will kick off early next year, when a beta for Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary goes live.
