Bungie Says Goodbye To Halo With Brain-Exploding Stats Page

As Halo creators Bungie say their last goodbyes to the series they created back in the 1990s, the developer has released a record of some multiplayer statistics gathered over the years.

They are mind-blowing. Seriously, even if you hate Halo, it's still an interesting read seeing the sheer scale of the numbers.

While lots of developers pull this stunt to try and draw attention to their games, it usually comes across as a little desperate, because past the 10 YEARS OF HUMAN DEATH or MORE GAMES THAN DAYS IN A YEAR claims you can still see nobody really plays the thing.

Halo, though, has nearly 10 years of cumulative multiplayer experience, and in that time some of the numbers its racked up over Xbox Live are genuinely impressive.

Like the fact that if you laid out uploaded screenshots it would circle the moon twice. Or that if you added up the combined playtime Bungie's servers have tracked it adds up to over 235,000 years.

    That's cool

    Awesome stuff, but it nevertheless makes me sad at Bungie have washed their hands of Halo from this point on. Reach just hasn't been the same, and nothing really matches Halo 3 at it's peak circa 2008-2009.

    As of yesterday our Bungie.net profile stats have been locked, never to be updated with any future games. Even though I haven't played any Halo for months, I miss it terribly. One day they will be gone forever - the melancholy I felt when I discovered HaloCharts was no longer operating has jsut returned tenfold.

    Having current and future Halo titles available under 343's management just won't be the same.

    Sigh.

      343 ain't gonna release a beta.
      we miss you bungie already.

      Agreed, Reach just didn't feel the same. Halo 2 and Halo 3... those were the days.
      Looking forward to Bungie's future though, and look forward to seeing what 343 hit us with.

    I will wait for Halo 4 before judging 343 studios. Who knows, it could be the greatest Halo in forever.
