Halo 5: Guardians breaks launch record for Xbox One exclusives


We already reported on the UK day one figures, but it seems Halo 5: Guardians was a success worldwide too.

Microsoft says that after one week, Halo 5: Guardians has made history as the fastest-selling Xbox One exclusive game to-date, with more than $400 million in global sales of Halo 5: Guardians games and hardware, pushing the franchise to over $5 billion lifetime. With the highest week one attach rate for a Microsoft first party title on Xbox One, the game was the most played of any game on Xbox One, as well as the most played on Xbox Live.



Fans have logged more than 21 million hours of total gameplay, including 12 million hours in campaign mode alone. The multiplayer modes have also led to nine million total hours played with nearly seven million multiplayer matches played across Arena and the all-new Warzone mode. In addition, Halo fans are taking to the new Requisition System in a big way, with over 45 million REQ Packs acquired, totalling more than 568 million REQ Cards.

“The success of Halo 5: Guardians is a testament to the innovative work from the entire team at 343 Industries to bring this installment to Xbox One and the incredible community of fans who have come to love the story, characters and gameplay central to the franchise,” said Phil Spencer, head of Xbox. “The game represents all the possibilities of Xbox One and has earned its place as the anchor title in the greatest holiday games lineup in Xbox history.”

"$400 million in global sales of Halo 5: Guardians games and hardware" - so this figure also includes people who bought the Halo + Console because they were waiting for it to come out before buying the Xbox One?

It was one of the lowest selling in the main series in the UK at launch, if not the lowest, so maybe it did very well in the U.S. Odd they include hardware

I think by biggest Halo launch they are referring to the launch stream rather than game sales.
