Microsoft announced during its Q2 2022 financial call with investors that Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5 very popular with players.
During the call, Microsoft President and CEO Satya Nadella announced millions of players have participated in the latest releases of the popular franchise series.
For example, Halo Infnite has over 20 million players, making the game the biggest game launch in Halo history.
Those numbers aren’t too surprising. The Steam crowd alone hit 100,000 players when the game’s player count dropped in November. And that number happened in less than an hour, and it attracted 272,000 concurrent players on the first night. The game’s peak concurrency is currently 272,586 as of a month ago.
Forza Horizon 5 isn’t too bad either, as it has had 18 million players to date. Attractive game 4.5 million players on launch day alone. On Steam, the game saw 81,096 concurrent players driving at the same time.
The company also recognizes the fact Game Pass now has over 25 million subscribers on PC and consoles, up 7 million from 18 million it is reported in January 2021.
