Halo Reach Gets An Official Release Date

by on May 24, 2010

So the Halo Reach beta has not long finished  and you are probably starting to feel those withdrawal symptoms kick in right about now? Fear not as Bungie have announced that the game will be released worldwide on September 14th, with the exception of the poor Japanese folk who will get it a day later. It seems Bungie were very pleased with the results they got during the beta test and have said:

“It’s exceeded our expectations, our only real perspective going into this was the Halo 3 beta test, which had about 800,000 people. We knew there were a couple million copies of ODST out there, but we really didn’t have any specific information that let us know what the population might be like.”

Over 2.7 million people logged onto the Halo: Reach beta to test out those snazzy new jet packs, click here for the full press release.
