If you’ve followed High on Life’s rise through the Game Pass and Xbox most played rankings you may already know that the game is very popular on the platform. Xbox has officially shared numbers and they show that High on Life is even bigger than previously believed.
High on Life is the biggest Game Pass launch in 2022, the biggest single player only launch in Game Pass history, and the biggest 3rd party game launch in the services history. Microsoft says these numbers are “measured in terms of engagement, based on the number of hours played in the first five days of release.”
Studio director of Squanch Games is quoted in the press release, saying “we’ve been blown away by the response from the players who have made us the most popular game on Game Pass right now. When Squanch Games was first created, it was to make the games we wanted to play – and Game Pass is helping us reach the players that want to play those games too.”
High on Life continues to be a runaway success and one that could not have been foreseen. It is incredible to see word of mouth propell this game to heights beyond any previously considered expectations.
Very well deserved, me and my son (18 years old) , both enjoying it immensly, both Rick and Morty fan so that probably helps, and after patches it’s a very polished game and very well made for a Triple-I as Justin likes to call it.
Congrats to Squanch Games and Xbox Gamepass team!.
Not surprised, been following it on the most played games and as soon as I saw it hit 11th and then 3rd I knew a bunch of people were playing it, it’s also doing big numbers on Steam so safe to say it’s a hit, Microsoft would be smart to sign a sequel immediately and maybe even prolong the exclusivity contract for this one.
And this game barely had marketing, I believe the most exposure it got was back when they revealed it at E3
I dont like the game at all. But i think part of the success is due to a huge starvation of notable exclusives for xbox and any major release people will try out. I wish i could enjoy it more though but uninsitalled it after 3 hours.
