Halo Infinite player count per console

As Microsoft claims, about 20 million have played Halo Infinite since it was released. However, it is tough to truly verify that claim because Microsoft keeps that data secret, and most other aggregators online deal with PC stats only.

Speaking of consoles, the only other platforms that Halo Infinite is available on are Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S. It is not available on either PlayStation or Nintendo because Halo is an Xbox or Microsoft exclusive title.

Unfortunately, there are no numbers regarding the people playing Halo Infinite on the Xbox consoles. Only Microsoft is privy to those numbers because Xbox doesn’t rely on third-party services for its multiplayer such as Steam. As such, considering that Microsoft is yet to release the number of players playing Halo Infinite, it is tough to say how many players are playing on the Xbox consoles.

These numbers are however a far cry from Halo Infinite’s peak when the game has seen 256,619 players in a single day.
