Gears 5 is the first game Xbox Studios Game to get over 3M players in its first weekend

It is rare to notice a video game succeed above expectations. Especially when it’s a word about the early launch. As such, Gears 5 has not only managed to surpass Fortnite on the Xbox Most Played Games charts but also become the first-ever game to get over 3 million players in its opening weekend.

This is the biggest launch in this Xbox Game Studios generation. With a number well over 3m players. This doubled the performance and success of its predecessors on the Xbox One platform, such as Gears of War 4.

On the PC platform Gears, 5 achieves a higher number of players, which compared to the previous series the player quantity is three times bigger. As per the official news article by Xbox:

The performance easily doubled the first week’s debut of Gears of War 4 and made Gears 5 the most-played Xbox Game Studios title in its first week since 2012’s Halo 4. First week performance includes the four-day early access period beginning Friday, September 6, which was exclusive to Gears 5 Ultimate Edition and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members. On the PC, Gears 5 has nearly tripled the performance of its predecessor, becoming the biggest-ever launch for Xbox Game Pass for PC, and Xbox Game Studios’ best-ever debut on Steam.

The franchise continues to grow as it’s moving forward, and everyone is looking forward to its future.
