Bungie and Microsoft released the multiplayer beta for Halo: Reach yesterday and due to an insane influx of users, from thousands to millions in hours, Bungie’s servers were stressed beyond belief, causing headaches for hopeful gamers.
Bungie revealed this morning that over a million of you guys played, or attempted to play, the beta yesterday, on its first day of availability.
The studio has been vocal and active in the Twittersphere, keeping gamers in the know, this morning issuing the following Tweets.
#Reach beta day two should be smoother than day one. All systems are go so far. Thanks for your patience and testing help!
BTW, we had over 1 million unique players login to the #Reach beta yesterday! Thanks to everyone who helped stress our servers and systems
Those of you who’ve managed to get games in, what’re you thinking? I’m not blown away just yet, but then again, it is a beta and Invasion isn’t available yet.
