Granted, Halo Reach is still bested by Dota 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and PUBG on Steam, but these are impressive stats nonetheless.

Another interesting tidbit is that that the game is among the best-viewed games on Twitch with currently over 80K viewers. According to Twitter user Nibel, Reach was the 3rd streamed game on Twitch yesterday with over 114k viewers.

Halo Reach was released as part of the Halo Master Chief Collection yesterday for PC and Xbox One. Other titles from the Master Chief Collection, including Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST Campaign and Halo 4, are being released in phases for PC.

As covered last week, Halo Reach launched on PC with an experimental Variable Frame Rate (VFR). We know this is a very important feature for the community, and with some recent refinements, VFR will be included at launch", 343 Industries wrote. "Based on the recent improvements receiving positive feedback, we wanted players to have the option to use the experimental VFR option on Day 1. We look forward to your feedback and will continue to monitor this closely post-launch.”
