The 18-day public beta for ‘Halo Reach’ of the game’s multiplayer mode has now ended.  According to Bungie the number of statistics during the beta are stunning. Players collectively logged more than 16 million hours and more than 1.1 billion virtual kills during the beta.  The game will be launched worldwide on Sept. 14.

“It’s exceeded our expectations,” said Bungie Studios community director Brian Jarrard. “Our only real perspective going into this was the ‘Halo 3’ beta test, which had about 800,000 people. We knew there were a couple million copies of ‘ODST’ out there, but we really didn’t have any specific information that let us know what the population might be like.”
