Halo Infinite Marks The Biggest Launch In Franchise History With 20 Million Players

Nadella spoke on Halo Infinite's success during Microsoft's recent second-quarter earnings call. He said:

We saw record engagement as well as revenue this quarter. Game Pass has more than 25 million subscribers across PC and console.

Nadella continued:

We released new AAA titles this holiday to rave reviews and record usage. 18 million played Forza Horizon 5 and more than 20 million have played Halo Infinite, making it the biggest Halo launch in history.

Forza Horizon 5 was released on the same platforms in November 2021, and it enjoyed similar success as Halo Infinite, crossing over 18 million players. Now, with the news of Microsoft acquiring Activision, players can expect more games to arrive on Game Pass soon.
