Microsoft today announced that sales of Halo Wars have reached more than one million units worldwide, making the exclusive Xbox 360 title the best selling real-time strategy game on any current generation console. With a revolutionary control scheme designed expressly for the Xbox 360 controller and a riveting story that takes Halo fans deeper into the Halo universe, Halo Wars is breaking new ground for the strategy genre by introducing a new wave of fans to strategy games and reminding existing fans why it’s so fun.

Since the game’s release throughout Asia on February 26 and subsequent launches in Europe and the Americas, fans around the world have been taking full advantage of the gameplay. To date:

– 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

 But these initial explosive battles in Halo Wars are just beginning. Microsoft is working closely with partner and newly formed studio Robot Entertainment, which is comprised of Halo Wars and Age of Empires veterans from Ensemble Studios. More Halo Wars content is being prepared, so stay tuned.
