Sorry Students: Halo: Reach Comes Out on September 14th

Sorry kids.  You’re going to have to do your homework before logging on to Halo: ReachBungie has announced the release date for the next installment in its history-making first-person-shooter, and it’s September 14th.

At the same time, they’ve announced some demographic info on the Reach beta, and the numbers are impressive.

Over the course of a month, 2.7 million people participated in the beta, more than three times the number of people in the beta for Halo 3. They played for a combined 16 million hours, and killed 1.1 billion virtual people.

We’ll have to wait until September for the battle to continue.
