Halo Dialogue Statistics, from the source
So recently, we've been getting a lot of email asking for information about the lines of dialogue recorded for each of the three Halo games; it's unclear to me whether there's a trivia contest going on somewhere, or if everyone just had the same idea at the same time. Either way, it seemed prudent to check with the only folks that could say for sure - the Bungie audio crew. Jay Weinland has all the files on his hard drive, so it was easy enough to look at stats:

  • Halo: 8,087 files produced
  • Halo 2: 21,090 files produced
  • Halo 3: 39,377 files produced

These numbers include alien speech, such as Jackals, Hunters, etc. And Marty wanted to clarify that not all of these are actually triggerable - the numbers that you actually have a chance of hearing are 15-20% below those numbers. Still, even if you can only hear 32,000 of them... 40,000 lines recorded for Halo 3. Wow. (Thanks, guys.) (Louis Wu 21:09:43 UTC)
