Master Chief, with the help of a small group of marines, has destroyed the religious artifact and artificial world known as âHalo,â and is making his way back to Earth. There, he and the last surviving Earth forces will mount a titanic struggle against the marauding Covenant enemy. To date, the Halo franchise has sold more than 14.5 million games worldwide with over 600 million hours of multiplayer action logged across Microsoftâs Xbox Live online gaming service.
