Grab your red pens folks, Microsoft has nailed a date down for Halo: Reach. According to retail sources, the shooter comes to Xbox 360 September 14.
That puts it a full two months before Activision plans to launch Call of Duty 7, a game believed to take place in Vietnam.
“It gives Halo enough time to maximise sales before CoD arrives,” said one senior trade source. “Xbox 360 is pretty synonymous with Call Of Duty, so it makes commercial sense for Microsoft and Activision to agree both games won’t come out too close to one another.”
We already knew it was penciled in for Fall 2010, so this date makes sense. Fans looking to get in on the action sooner can do so May 3 when the multiplayer beta goes live.
