Despite being out for just over an hour, Halo: Reach has already logged over 100,000 players on Steam alone.
At the time of posting, the game has hit over 111,604 players. You can keep an eye on the number of players over at Steam’s Stats page.
As a reminder: these statistics don’t include the number of players playing on Xbox or through Game Pass, so the actual number of players is most likely higher.
The news comes courtesy of Twitter user Nibellion, who also mentions that the game is already #3 on Twitch with over 114k viewers watching streams of Halo: The Master Chief Collection as we speak.

This sudden influx of players just shows how well Microsoft exclusives can do on Steam thanks to player demand. Microsoft has previously announced that it plans on bringing more titles to Valve’s storefront, including Gears 5 and Age of Empires: Definitive Edition, the latter of which also supports cross-play.
Halo: Reach is available on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC for the price of just $9.99/£6.99, with the entire Halo: The Master Chief Collection costing $39.99/£29.99. You can also get it on both PC and Xbox One through Xbox Game Pass.
If you’re playing on PC, you’ll be able to mod Halo: Reach as long as you disable anti-cheat.
