Halo Infinite’s free-to-play multiplayer beta Halo Infinite hasn’t even been out for 24 hours and is already breaking records.
According to Benji Sales, the Game amassed over 270,000 concurrent players on Steam. This is the first Xbox Studios game to reach such notable player-count heights in such a short period.
Halo Infinite is now the first ever Xbox Studios Game to pass 200k+ concurrent players on Steam and set the all-time record— Benji-Sales (@BenjiSales) November 15, 2021
1. Halo Infinite – 201,044 (and growing)
2. Halo MCC – 161,024
3. Forza Horizon 5 – 81,096
4. Age of Empires IV – 73,928
5. Sea of Thieves – 66,906 pic.twitter.com/IRqKU67MKY
This feat is even more impressive when considering the surprise announcement during yesterday’s 20th Anniversary stream.
Totals on Xbox and the PC app haven’t been confirmed yet. Still, it’s safe to assume that the latest multiplayer installment in the Halo franchise is going to break records on other platforms as well.
Halo Infinite launches for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC on December 8.
