Microsoft Predicts Over $1 Billion Revenue From PC Gaming in 2023

Gaming Revenue Currently 2x Xbox 360 Era!

Microsoft recently concluded its Xbox Games Showcase and Starfield Direct for 2023. Following the events, the press has revealed more details about a private presentation outlining Microsoft’s plans for the future.

According to a journalist, Microsoft and Xbox expect over $1 billion in revenue from PC gaming this year.

Why it matters: Xbox ditched console exclusivity several years ago, releasing games on PC and Xbox consoles simultaneously. Therefore, it is essential for the company that the PC market continues to enjoy Xbox offerings.

PC users have access to all first-party titles from Xbox. The user base can also benefit from Microsoft’s gaming subscription, Xbox Game Pass.

This allows Microsoft to bring new and existing PC gamers to the Xbox ecosystem. For those not interested in first-party titles, Game Pass offers several third-party games at launch.

Phil Spencer also highlighted the current success of Xbox. According to the Xbox Games Studios CEO, the company has doubled its revenue compared to the days of the Xbox 360 generation.

This is an impressive achievement since the Xbox 360 is often considered Microsoft’s best console generation.

Games like Starfield and Forza Motorsport are expected to boost Game Pass subscribers in the coming months, and Microsoft is likely hoping to see this trend on PC as well. The gaming giant previously saw nearly $1 billion in revenue from the subscription service in a single quarter, and it now hopes to achieve similar figures on the PC platform.
