THE BUZZ: Bungie has released an infographic showing how much time Halo fans have logged over the years, a final bit of info for fans as the developer passes the stat tracking torch to 343 Industries.
According to Bungie, fans have collectively played around 235,182 years of Halo, which it notes is enough time to travel across the Milky Way and back at the speed of light.
“We have followed your careers with great interest here on Bungie.net and you have gifted us a mountain of heroic moments to memorialize,” the developer said. “It is with a sense of awe that we step back and admire the impact that you have had on our games, and upon our studio. Thanks for sharing your stories with us.”
EGM’s TAKE: Bungie has created a gaming legacy that will last forever with the Halo franchise. Every single gamer has heard of Halo even if they have never played it, and only a few haven’t at least played one entry. Even if it isn’t to your liking you can’t deny how impressive the games have been. The testament to this legacy is in these stats. How many other games can make claims like these? The team at 343 Industries has a massive pair of shoes to fill, the question is, are they up to it?
