Community Manager Jessica Shea pretty much sums it up:
More people played Halo 4 in the first 24 hours than any other Halo launch day in history.
Neither 343 industries nor Microsoft have actually shared any official numbers as of yet, but this isn’t particularly surprising with the amount of excitement and press surrounding this release. Shea responded to the immense amount of launch day activity in a recent gamezone.com interview:
“To say we’ve been overwhelmed by the response to our game would an understatement,” she said on behalf of 343 Industries. “We’re humbled by your feedback and blown away by how many of you are spending significant amounts of time traversing our virtual battlefields.”
“Thank you for playing our game and stay tuned for additional updates, because we have some amazing things planned for the future of Halo 4,” she concluded.
Details on the release of Halo 4 have been promised to be release on Monday.
