Microsoft's iconic green Spartan certainly has some serious selling power, as the publisher announced today that the Halo series has broken the 50 million mark in units sold.
Prior to Halo 4's launch, the company revealed that Halo sales had surpassed the 46 million mark, so after a bit of basic math, one can conclude that sales of 343i's latest are somewhere around 4 million.
With such a profitable franchise, you can be sure that Microsoft won't let its biggest moneymaker go to waste. In fact, the studio has already begun working on the next entry in the series. Frank O’Connor of 343i told CVG that the studio is currently in the early stages of Halo 5's development, saying that "work on the game started actually before we launched Halo 4 and continues apace as we cycle staff through the team’s vacation breaks. We’re excited about the next game.”
Are you psyched for the next entry in the Halo franchise, or are you still so engrossed in Halo 4 that the idea of a new installment is a bit too much to chew on right now?
