If you’ve followed High on Life’s rise through the Game Pass and Xbox most played rankings you may already know that the game is very popular on the platform. Xbox has officially shared numbers and they show that High on Life is even bigger than previously believed.
High on Life is the biggest Game Pass launch in 2022, the biggest single player only launch in Game Pass history, and the biggest 3rd party game launch in the services history. Microsoft says these numbers are “measured in terms of engagement, based on the number of hours played in the first five days of release.”

Studio director of Squanch Games is quoted in the press release, saying “we’ve been blown away by the response from the players who have made us the most popular game on Game Pass right now. When Squanch Games was first created, it was to make the games we wanted to play – and Game Pass is helping us reach the players that want to play those games too.”
High on Life continues to be a runaway success and one that could not have been foreseen. It is incredible to see word of mouth propell this game to heights beyond any previously considered expectations.
