As Halo Infinite sales continue hitting top spots among key marketplaces, we take a look at historical franchise sales for more context.
Unlike previous Halo games, Halo Infinite is insulated against low sales. The free-to-play multiplayer offers a way to make long-term revenues without a $60 pay gate. Despite this free access point, Halo Infinite's premium campaign looks to be selling decently.
Infinite is the #3 best-seller on Amazon, is the 18th best-selling game on the PC Microsoft Store, and has sold an estimated 800,000+ copies on Steam (based on Game Discover Co. Simon Carless' conversions, Halo Infinite's campaign could've sold anywhere from 500,083 - 833,472 units in 2021). Halo Infinite's campaign is also the 15th top paid game on Xbox.
The F2P access is a double-edged sword, though. Infinite's $59.99 campaign is no longer among the top 50 most-played games on Xbox. It appears most gamers have moved on to the F2P multiplayer or other games entirely--especially those with the wide net of games availability cast by Xbox Game Pass.
