Halo Infinite is undoubtedly one of the most important brands microsoft has. The new game in the series was postponed after negative reviews received by the promotional video, and at the end of last year it met with gamers. It seems that this postponement is a game-play. Both the positive reviews he received on his release and the number of players he reached confirm this comment.
In Microsoft’s financial presentation, the company’s CEO Satya Nadella said: “We are not going to be able to do that. Halo Infinte, which debuted in December, has reached over 20 million players. Considering that Forza Horizon 5, released in November, also reached 18 million players, it is possible to say that the last quarter of 2021 was quite good for Microsoft. At the same time, the number of Game Pass subscribers exceeded 25 million; So the table for Microsoft is quite nice.
Nadella; “We have released new AAA games during the holiday season; These games received positive feedback and reached a record number of players. While 18 million people played Forza Horizon 5, more than 20 million players played Halo Infinite , which means infinte is the best debuting game in the Halo series.
Forza Horizon 5 also broke the franchise record by surpassing 10 million players in its first week. Therefore, microsoft has reached new heights for both brands. I guess we can expect similar performances in their next game, don’t you think?
