While it took 343 Industries years to finish development on Halo 4, more than one million gamers needed less than a week to complete the game's campaign. Microsoft has divulged player statistics for Halo 4, revealing 1,116,882 players beat the game's campaign in the first five days. Of those, just six percent finished the story mode on the game's most difficult Legendary setting.
Earlier this week, Microsoft announced Halo 4 generated $220 million in five-day revenue, but did not share how many total game purchases that equaled. The data from Microsoft today suggests that number is around 4 million, as that is how many played Halo 4 on Xbox Live during the launch week.
Microsoft also said players racked up 4,590,416,285 total kills while connected to Xbox Live and unlocked 43,335,060 achievements. Additionally, gamers spent a total of 31.4 million hours playing Halo 4 during launch week, with 16 million of those hours logged in the game's War Games multiplayer mode.
