Starfield Surpassed 6 Million Players In Less Than 10 Days

Expert Verified By

Biggest Bethesda Launch To Date!

Not too long ago, Todd Howard revealed that Bethesda expects Starfield to be its biggest launch despite a rich history with impressive RPGs. Following release, the game seems to be living up to the studio’s expectations.

Yesterday, Phil Spencer revealed that Starfield has already become Xbox’s most-played next-gen exclusive and had accumulated over a million concurrent players, making it an exceptional launch.

Following such figures, Starfield has reached over 6 million players, making it Bethesda’s biggest launch to date.

Why it matters: The game had over five years of anticipation behind it, and the studio spent nearly a decade perfecting its most ambitious RPG.

This announcement comes nearly 8 days after the game entered early access.

While the full release has only been around for two days, the game was estimated to have reached over 2 million players in early access alone. As such, the full release has led to an additional 4 million players for the game.

Prior to release, many were concerned that Xbox exclusivity would prevent the game from reaching the masses. However, Game Pass appears to have played a massive role in bringing millions of new players to the sci-fi universe.

Todd Howard has also claimed that Xbox exclusivity made Starfield a better game as it is easier to develop a game for a specific set of hardware. As such, Xbox exclusivity has played a major part in the title’s current success.


This is just the beginning of a long road for Starfield. Millions of players are likely to continue enjoying the game since Bethesda games usually live for many users through a dedicated modding community.

The RPG has already gathered over a hundred mods in a short period, and official mod support from Bethesda is also coming at a later date.

Starfield has made a major impact on the industry. The game’s success appears to be just what Xbox was looking for, as it recently claimed that the RPG would mark the beginning of a long list of quality first-party titles.
