Microsoft has announced that within the launch week, Halo 5: Guardians has made history as the biggest Halo launch and fastest-selling Xbox One exclusive game to-date, with more than $400 million in global sales. Digital sales saw it become the best-selling digital game ever in the Xbox Store for an opening week.

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. 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, over 45 million REQ Packs were acquired, totaling more than 568 million REQ Cards.
