According to Redmond-based software giant Microsoft, 'Halo: Reach' will be rolled out to the awaiting public all over the world this September. To be more precise the most anticipated game of the year will become generally available on the 14th of September. In Japan the game will be released one day later, on the 15th of September.

Halo: Reach is the culmination of a decade of Halo, a franchise that has become a global entertainment and pop-culture touchstone. Just as Halo: Combat Evolved catalyzed the success of the original Xbox to define a decade of entertainment, Halo: Reach will push the boundaries for what’s possible in video games and help make 2010 the biggest year in Xbox history,” commented Corporate Vice President of Microsoft Game Studios with Microsoft Corp, Phil Spencer.

According to a recent reader poll by Guinness World Records, Halo is the no.1 game series of all time. According to Microsoft, it is also the best-selling video game franchise of all time. Just to put things in perspective, Microsoft recorded a staggering 2.7 million player requests for the multiplayer Beta version of Halo: Reach. This huge demand for Halo: Reach made it the largest console video game beta test on record. The interest in Halo: Reach Beta was three times larger than in Halo 3 Beta.

The game is already shaping up to be a big success – opinion that is shared by Senior Vice President of Merchandising with GameStop, Bob McKenzie.

“There’s no doubt in my mind that ‘Halo: Reach’ will be one of the biggest games and hottest entertainment products of the year,” said McKenzie. “Pre-orders for Halo: Reach have been off the charts, with fans snapping up the limited and legendary editions since they were introduced just a month ago. Overall, it’s a real testament to the passion of the Halo fan base."
