Halo Infinity is already the most played Xbox Game Studios title of all time on Steam.
In case you missed it yesterday, November 16, Xbox launched Halo Infinity’s multiplayer component in open beta for PC and Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and Xbox One with immediate effect. As industry analyst Daniel Ahmed notes below, Halo Infinity surpassed the highest concurrent player count for an Xbox Game Studios title in just over two and a half hours.

hello infinite will only go up from there, and as SteamDB Reportedly, the all-time concurrent peak player for the 343 sequel now sits at a whopping 272,586 players. That peak figure came last night on November 15th at around 7PM PT/10PM ET, just hours after Xbox first announced that Halo Infinity’s multiplayer mode would go live on the same day.
Right now, Halo Infinity’s open multiplayer beta continues to celebrate the 20th anniversary of both the original Xbox One and Halo: Combat Evolved. Although the multiplayer mode is in beta for everyone right now, all progress made during the beta will carry over to the final game when it launches next month, so you don’t have to worry about wasting Battle Pass progress.
Halo Infinity will launch now in a matter of weeks starting December 8th, and will be available as a one-day launch via Xbox Game Pass on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S. Additionally, as previously announced on 343, the multiplayer mode will launch in a truly free-to-play model for everyone, so to jump into Halo Infinity’s multiplayer mode you’ll need to own the entire game or play the Xbox game. There is also no need to be a nearby subscriber.
