Microsoft has announced that Halo has sold 60 million titles around the globe since it’s release in 2001 on the OG original Xbox.
The 60 million units sold comes from Halo 1-4 and the spinoffs, and reportedly over 6 billion hours have been played!! If you’re not a math wiz that comes out to about 684,000 years, crazy stuff right? Other franchises have surpassed the 60 million mark, but for Microsoft this is a huge accomplishment since Halo is exclusive to the Xbox.
The Halo Master chief collection is right around the corner and me and my team can’t wait to get our hands on a copy. The Master Chief collection contains Halo 1-4 as well as other bonus goodies. Then Microsoft will be gearing up for the release of Halo 5: Guardians in 2015, but you can play the beta in December if you pick up the master chief collection. And it seems like there will be more Halo games to come after that.
Let us know what you think about Microsoft’s milestone and how you feel about Halo Master chief Collection and Halo 5 in the comments below!!
