Xbox and Halo have officially turned 15 years old


Halo and Xbox have been synonymous with each other for a very good reason; the first Halo game was released with the original Xbox console in 2001. Halo: Combat Evolved became a launch title for the console after Microsoft purchased its developer, Bungie, shortly before the release in 2001.

November 15th 2001 marked the release date for the original Xbox console and Halo: Combat Evolved so to celebrate this birthday anniversary, the Xbox Marketing Director is took control of the Xbox Snapchat account. New series developer 343 Industries also hosted a livestream on Twitch to share this occasion with the loyal fans of Halo and Xbox.

It's not a particularly large celebration but it's certainly a reminded of just how young the Xbox brand is when compared to Nintendo or PlayStation consoles; despite the initial hardship the Xbox faced, it's become one of the biggest platforms in gaming and Halo is a household name for gamers.

Happy 15th Xbox and Halo!
