Halo Infinite Multiplayer

Well, it looks like Halo Infinite got off to a pretty great start in the US! Despite its Xbox Game Pass launch, Halo Infinite still topped the December sales charts for both Xbox and PC platforms. Only Call of Duty beat it across all systems for the month.

We have to say we're quite surprised by the PC sales, given the series' ties to Xbox. We don't get a full breakdown of PC sales for the month, but the data includes Steam, which is likely where the majority of Infinite's PC sales came from. Here's what NPD Analyst Mat Piscatella said on Halo Infinite's sales:

"Halo: Infinite debuted as the No. 2 best-selling game of December 2021, [...] Halo: Infinite ranked as the December’s best-selling game on Xbox platforms, while also leading sales among tracked titles on PC."

We're not surprised to see it lose out to Call of Duty: Vanguard overall. While it may have been a weak year by the franchise's standards, CoD is still huge, and has a major presence on PlayStation platforms too.

Still, it's great to see Halo Infinite selling well even with free-to-play multiplayer, and a Game Pass launch to boot.
