Microsoft's FY21 Q3 results have revealed the gaming side of its business has experienced massive growth. Gaming revenue increased by 50% year-over-year resulting in $3.53 billion in total for the third financial quarter.
Xbox revenue experienced a 232% jump thanks to the "continued demand" for the Xbox Series X|S. Xbox content and services also recorded a 34% increase - driven by first and third-party titles and Xbox Game Pass.
Niko Partners senior analyst Daniel Ahmad suggests these results would likely be "the best" Q1 (FY Q3) for Microsoft's gaming division since it began sharing this data.
