Halo 4 Racks up $220 Million in Global Sales in 24 Hours

I don’t think it will come as a surprise to anyone out there that Halo 4 is already a major success. Microsoft has announced that the launch of the game is the biggest and most successful launch in the franchise’s history. In fact, the game brought in a whopping $220 million globally in the first 24 hours of availability.

Microsoft believes that the game is on track to gross more than $300 million in global sales the first week it’s available. The game earned more money on its opening day than the biggest opening day sales in U.S. box office history for a Hollywood blockbuster. That happened to be the movie Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. Halo 4 also earned more money on its opening day than The Avengers to put things in perspective.

Microsoft also offered a bit of insight into how much time players are spending with Halo 4. During the first five days it was available, over 4 million players played online. Those players spent a total of 31.4 million hours playing the game. Even more impressive is that Microsoft says the entire Halo franchise has racked up over 5 billion hours played since the series first debuted.
