Default Halo 3: ODST drops 2.5M, Halo: Reach a prequel

Advertisement

USA Today reveals Bungie's latest generated over $125 million in under a fortnight, 2010 game will chronicle siege of fortress planet; Halo franchise sales top 27 million units.

Quote:
Though there was little doubt it would sell well, Halo 3: ODST is now officially a hit. Microsoft told USA Today that the Master Chief-less expansion pack to the 2007 smash hit sold over 2.5 million copes in the two weeks after its September 22 launch. The company did not specify if those sales were global or just in the US, where the similarly Xbox 360-exclusive Halo 3 has sold nearly 6.3 million units. To date, some 27 million Halo games have been sold worldwide.

Microsoft did say Halo 3: ODST has generated $125 million in revenues for its Entertainment and Devices division. The game should put more wind in the financial sails of the department and its Microsoft Games Studios label, which will release Forza Motorsport 3 on October 27. During its 2008 fiscal year, the E&D division eked out a second straight profitable year, with net income of $169 million.

USA Today also got some new information on Halo: Reach, the fifth Halo game from independent studio Bungie, which broke away from Microsoft in 2007. As suspected, the game will be set before the events of the original Halo, when the alien fundamentalist empire of the Covenant launched a massive attack on the United Nations Space Command (UNSC) fortress world of Reach.

"It's a prequel to Halo one," Frank O'Connor, creative director for Microsoft Halo label 343 Industries, told the newspaper. "[It] is a chronological prequel but it is not a prequel in the directions the Star Wars prequels were to the [original] movies. It will [only] cover events in and around the planet Reach."

The aforementioned events were also the subject of the first novel based on the sci-fi shooter series, author and Gears of War co-writer Eric Nylund's Halo: The Fall of Reach. That novel chronicles both the origins of Halo series hero Master Chief and the sinister origins of the SPARTAN program which turned him into a super-soldier.

Crazy, I really did not think Halo OSDT would sell that well...I was wrong.

Well, I prefer Xbox exclusives like Ninja Gaiden II, that game was awesome but never released in Germany because it's too violent so I had to import it. It was worth the money! <3

ODST had the HALO effect any game with the HALO name automatically sells a million copies in the first week
you could slap halo on a hannah montana game and it would sell good

When Halo first came out I was hyped and only brought an xbox for it. But the others are just the same over and over. Although I did enjoy Halo 2. I like the Halo series but its just stupid how its overrated just like world of warcraft.

I just read somewhere that they've got a plan for at least 6 years.

"We do have a plan that goes out at least six years. Eventually it will become very apparent that there is a plan for the way the canon ties together and the way the comic books and the novels all tie together" says O'Connor

They're also thinking about a Halo movie, but they're still looking for the right timing and partner.
