No pressure… Bungie have again hyped up the impending Halo: Reach release saying that they are expecting it to be the definitive Halo experience for long standing fans and newcomers alike.
In an interview with The Seattle Times the Community Director, Brian Jarrard, said:
“We’re very optimistic. We have a lot riding on this game and we have high expectations for it.
We certainly feel Reach will be the best Halo game that Bungie’s ever made, and I think Microsoft’s going to bet really big behind it.
This is what Microsoft does really well – big, huge entertainment launches. You’re going to see that happen again for Reach.”
The hype seems to be working with forecasts of three million players active in the beta on day one, which would make it the most popular beta in gaming history.
