Halo Wars, the latest game to bear the name of Microsoft's favorite franchise, has recently eclipsed the one million copies sold mark. While that may sound somewhat impressive on it's own, you have to remember this is the first Halo game to step away from the first person shooter genre and lunge, head first, into the real time strategy category. That lunge, as it turns out, was well worth it and Microsoft is very quick to tout the fact that Halo Wars is now the best selling RTS title on any of the current generation consoles.
In addition to the one million copies sold, Microsoft also gave the following numbers regarding gameplay:
- There have been more than 2.6 million multiplayer matches played
- More than 118 years of time has been spent in multiplayer matches on Xbox LIVE®
- On average, more than 200,000 Halo Wars fans have taken up arms in battles between the UNSC and Covenant each day
