Microsoft and Bungee Studios latest installment of the Halo series has broken all previous records of sales on the first day of its launch. According to the date released by Microsoft, Halo: Reach for Xbox 360 has made over $200 Million in the first 24 hours of the game going out for sale.
It’s “the biggest game Microsoft has ever released,” said Phil Spencer, the corporate vice president of Microsoft Game Studios, in a statement. “Every major installment has grown in scope and popularity, firmly cementing the ‘Halo’ franchise as one of the most popular entertainment properties in the world over the past decade.”
This puts Microsoft back in the game in console titles and with Kinect already out in the market, we can expect Halo series to get its own Kinect title as well in near future.
