Most Played Games on Xbox (US & UK) – Nov 21st

Starfield remains in the top 10 position (US)

2023 has been a crazy year for games to play, and while we’ve all been enjoying Starfield and Forza, the broader community has been playing a surprising variety of games, at least according to the most played lists for the US and the UK.

Here at XboxEra, we thought it would be a good idea to track the most played games from two of Xbox’s most successful regions to give the community a better understanding of what is being played on the console ecosystem. With Xbox’s increased focus on player engagement, it also gives us a chance to focus on how Xbox’s first party lineup (written in yellow for easy tracking) is doing in terms of player engagement. Listed below are the top 25 games from the two regions, but the list itself goes to 50 or 49.

Quick disclaimer, these lists are not made by us and are sourced directly from Microsoft’s site. The exact methodology as to how they create these lists is also not known.

Like many, I started my Xbox journey with Halo CE and I've been a pretty big fan ever since. I don't know too much about the technical mumbo jumbo but I know that the future of Xbox looks bright and I'm happy to be along for the ride.
