To say that Halo Infinite is the most successful launch in the entire history of this beloved franchise is a massive achievement. Especially when you consider that this has been one of the most popular first-person shooters for two decades as well as being a flagship name of the Xbox brand.


Forza Horizon 5 also has impressive numbers

In comparison, Forza Horizon 5 has now generated 18 million players, which is very impressive in its own right. However, Halo Infinite has exceeded Forza Horizon 5 in a shorter space of time.

The impressive numbers for both Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5 further proves the benefits of Xbox Game Pass. Furthermore, not only did both games launch on day one via the subscription service, but they were both available for PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. Which is no doubt a great way to keep those online player numbers up.
