The debate is over, Halo 5: Guardians is definitely a better game than Destiny. One week after launch, the game became the fastest-selling Xbox One exclusive one to date, and earned over $400 million in global sales. This puts the Halo franchise at having earned over $5 billion since it began.
What’s more, last wee’s Halo 5: Live earned the franchise a Guinness World Record for most watched video game launch broadcast, with over 330,000 game streams on the night of the event. Other content from the event garnered a total of 5.5 million views throughout the week, and resulted in a steep increase in digital sales for Halo 5. It became the best selling digital game in history in the Xbox Store for its opening week. So, really, which is the better game? At least according to hype and sales, Halo 5 definitely takes Destiny‘s cake.
This just goes to show the innovation that comes from the Halo series and the efforts to bring the best possible game to fans. Xbox and 343 Industries have definitely made it so that Halo 5 not only takes full advantage of the Xbox, but that brings out what the fans love the most about the franchises’ stories, characters and gameplay.
The game is sure to beat out Destiny even as the holidays set in, where Halo 5: Guardians is expected to break through a few more records.
