Halo series sold 65 million copies worldwide

Halo is possibly one of the most popular gaming series from Microsoft for its gaming console. The popular shooter series made its debut on Xbox in 2001 with Halo: Combat Evolved and has grown since then to become one of the top gaming titles and help drive Xbox sales. Microsoft announced (via Gamespot) the company has sold more than 65 million units of the Halo Series, up from 60 million titles sold worldwide in October 2014. 

Microsoft said,

A worldwide fan-base of passionate players building an epic universe beyond gameplay. With over 65 million Halo game titles and over 35 million Mega Bloks Halo sets sold, some of the world’s most hyper-engaged fans are bringing the Halo universe to life through construction, helping to shape this legendary world in their own way. 

The latest addition to the series was the Halo: The Master Chief Collection which was release in November last year. The company didn’t reveal specific details about the figures for the new title, but it’s likely the sales are going good as Microsoft bundled it with the Xbox One, and some promotions were also introduced over the past few months. It’s not the only title, Microsoft is also taking digital pre-orders of the Halo 5: Guardians which is set to launch on October 27th later this year.
