Xbox experiences losses in the last quarter, although Game Pass continues to grow

Xbox continues to grow, although certain sectors of your company obtain negative data.

Xbox and its services improve, although revenue from games falls.

Xbox continues to grow, though his numbers are not as good as one might initially expect; perhaps this is due to the lack of exclusives over the last year. The company recently shared its fiscal results for the months from October to December. And as we told you, these are a mix between good and bad.

Something that is clear is that people still like Xbox, not in vain the Microsoft console has achieved a record monthly number of active users and Xbox Game Pass subscribers. We are talking about a number that reaches 120 million monthly active players, Game Pass subscribers are not mentioned, but a year ago, the service had 25 million users.

Xbox continues to grow, but suffers in some aspects

While the record number of active players and Xbox Game Pass subscribers is good news, the bad news comes in revenue from game sales. This is where the company has taken a hit, possibly due to the few exclusive games that made it to the Xbox console. More concretely, these revenues are down 13% and overall content and services revenues are down 12%, though Game Pass subscriptions continue to grow. The company is clear why:

This is due to decreases in content first party and less monetization in games third party.

The year 2021 left Microsoft with games like Forza Horizon 5 and Halo Infinite, however, 2022 has been significantly less in terms of big releases. So yes, the downturn hasn’t caught too many people by surprise, it’s logical that if you don’t offer new content, expectations will drop.

This new year seems to be quite different, Microsoft and Xbox have big launches for 2023 and that will be a plus for the company’s data to grow. These games are really striking, we will have Forza Motorsport, Redfall or Starfield. Although knowing how the Redmond ones work, we will surely have some more surprises.
