Microsoft has confirmed that comedy shooter High on Life has become the biggest Xbox Game Pass launch of 2022, and the biggest third party launch title on the service ever. High on Life was also the biggest single player only game launch on Xbox Game Pass too. While Microsoft has not released specific figures, the company has stated that these figures are based on the number of hours High on Life has been played in the first five days of release.
“This was our first time launching a game with Game Pass,” said Mike Fridley, Studio Director and COO of Squanch Games, “and 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 is an incredibly unique title that we’ve been excited about for a long time,” said Matt Percy, General Manager of Content Planning at Xbox. “It’s fantastic to see so many Game Pass members jump into it at launch to experience Squanch’s story for themselves ahead of the holidays.”
