Starfield Becomes Biggest Xbox Game Studios Launch Day Yet

Big, big wins for Bethesda and Xbox!

It has been revealed that Starfield has become the biggest Xbox Games Studios launch day yet.

Yesterday, Xbox boss Phil Spencer reported that Starfield had exceeded one million concurrent players across all platformers, but he did not specify the number of unique users that played the game. Today, a new report has been posted on the official Starfield account on Twitter to reveal the official numbers.

According to the account, over six million players have played the Starfield by the end of its first official day of release. That is six times the concurrent player count that was reported by Spencer yesterday, which is quite surprising despite being only one day and there are only two platforms for this game.

“As of this morning, Starfield has already surpassed 6 million players, making it the biggest Bethesda game launch of all time,” the post says.

This makes the game the biggest day one launch for any Xbox Game Studios title which now includes Bethesda’s titles.

Starfield is out now on PC and Xbox Series X/S.
