Halo Infinite player count per console

As Microsoft claims, more than 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 has yet to release the number of players playing Halo Infinite, it is tough to say how many players are playing on the Xbox consoles.

Is Halo Infinite player count rising or falling?

The Halo Infinite seems to be alternating between gaining and losing players at the moment with great fluctuations in player numbers. Over the last couple of months, the game has seen a rising trend in the total number of players varying from an 80% gain in November 2023 to a 45.16% Loss in December 2023.

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

MonthMonthly Gain / LossMonthly Gain / Loss %
Last 30 Days+76,267+17.97%
January 2024-76,267-15.23%

Of course, it is expected for any older game to have dwindling player counts because of the fact that some people will quickly grow tired of it. And you also have to consider the fact that we are living in a saturated online gaming market with plenty of competitors on the playing field.

So, even if it might be true that Halo Infinite players are meager, the numbers might see a bigger increase. Of course, we can also say that there will be more players joining the mix in the next few months due to the release of ‘Halo’ Season 2.

How many people watch Halo Infinite on Twitch?

In the last 7 days, 429,015 hours of Halo Infinite content was watched.

The most recent trend, however, in February 2024 shows some signs of recovery as the game gained +698 viewers in the last 30 days or translated into percentages of +37.7%. All of this is also likely due to the release of the TV show.
