Atomic Heart Is Reportedly The Biggest Xbox Launch Of 2023
Atomic Heart has finally been released after months of anticipation. It quickly became popular on PC and reached the number-one spot on the best-selling Steam games right after its release. Consoles gamers are also very excited about the game as it supports a solid 60 FPS on next-gen consoles.
The game was released on Xbox Game Pass, and the subscription service appears to have helped the title tremendously. According to TrueAcheivements, a website that tracks Game scores for applications, Atomic Heart is the biggest Xbox launch of 2023.
First week player data suggests that Atomic Heart is a runaway success, and the most popular new Xbox release of 2023 so far… https://t.co/fBhWvuBSHU
The game is standing at number one with 120,000 players in the first week, almost 20k more than Hogwarts Legacy, which reached a total number of 100k players in its first week. While Hi-Fi rush surprised everyone with a shadow drop, it couldn’t reach even 100K tracked players. Golden Eye 007 showed similar results, falling short of 100K.
However, the data should be taken with a slight pinch of salt. It is difficult to believe that Hogwarts Legacy has not reached the top, but it is possible that Xbox Game Pass gave Atomic Heart a considerable boost.
Atomic Heart is performing exceptionally well on every platform, and speedrunners are also having a great time with the FPS title. The game has already been completed in just over 7 Minutes.
