Phil Spencer, the head of the Xbox team, has revealed that Starfield, a highly anticipated game, achieved a remarkable milestone by having over 1 million simultaneous players on its first day of general release (after previously being in early access). This impressive feat includes players on both PC and Xbox platforms.
Determining the exact sales figures for Starfield could be challenging due to the inclusion of players from the Game Pass on both PC and Xbox. However, it’s worth noting that the game attracted a peak of approximately 270,000 players on Steam alone. This number does not yet account for PC players who purchased the game directly from the Microsoft Store.
In a tweet, Phil Spencer expressed his gratitude to all the players who contributed to reaching this significant milestone. He also extended his congratulations to Bethesda Studios, the game’s developer.
