In just two short months, Halo 5 has made an astonishing amount of money through not only individual game sales but now also microtransactions.
Players have been delving into the Warzone REQ pack system and Microsoft has made a huge $1 million in just microtransactions. This basically ensures that the game will permanently have microtransactions, but it’s not all bad – new (free!) maps and game modes will be released on a monthly basis, likely funded by REQ pack revenue.
In November, the game made a total of $700,000 in microtransactions, and it’s now reached $1 million. A portion of of the profits have gone to the Halo 5 Championship prize pool, which has reached $2 million – quite a large prize pool for players to be competing for.
