Halo Infinite has undoubtedly been a huge success for 343 Industries. From the surprise launch of the game's multiplayer beta to the release of the next chapter in Master Chief's story, the title has been immense fun for fans of the series - offering a return to form for the franchise that fans have been waiting years for.

It's a huge deal that Halo is able to reach the levels of quality that Infinite has, especially so many years since the game launched, and fans are responding by showing up for the game in droves. They've done it so much, that they've made the latest Halo title the biggest at launch that the franchise has ever seen.

How Is Halo Infinite's Launch The Series' Biggest Ever?

Halo Infinite Had The Franchise's Biggest Launch Ever

It has been revealed that the arrival of Infinite has been the most lucrative launch that the series has ever had. Not bad some 20 years after Master Chief first jumped into action.

During the recent Microsoft conference call, it was revealed that more than 20 million people have played Halo Infinite across its multiplayer and campaign. That's a better launch than any Halo game that has come before it, and is only 5 million players less than the subscriber base of Xbox's Game Pass. Blimey.

Though a lot of this is likely in thanks to the multiplayer being free-to-play and the campaign being available on Game Pass, if Xbox's goal was to get as many people engaged with Halo again as possible, it has more than succeeded. But, that's not everything that was revealed.

 

Forza Horizon 5 Has Hit 18 Million Players

Since it was revealed that Forza Horizon 5 had the biggest launch in Xbox history by pulling in over 10 million players in its first week, the racing game has gone from strength to strength by making its numbers up to over 18 million players. It has since left its predecessor in the dust and become the most popular in the Forza Horizon series - impressing fans left, right, and centre.

Xbox has had a great quarter, and these numbers just about prove it. It's especially good to see that Halo's return to being a top-quality shooter has been rewarded by fan attention and that it continues to be a big selling point for Xbox. The console might have some big things on the horizon, but one thing's for certain - fans aren't ready to say goodbye to Master Chief just yet.
