Lift off.

Bethesda’s highly anticipated RPG, Starfield, has taken the gaming world by storm as it officially launched earlier this week following its early access. The game has already made waves with an astounding achievement – surpassing 1 million concurrent players across all platforms. Phil Spencer, a prominent figure in the gaming industry and the head of Xbox, shared this exciting news on social media, marking a triumphant beginning for the space-themed epic.

Starfield Player Numbers Exceed 1 Million Concurrents

In a Tweet, Phil Spencer expressed his enthusiasm and gratitude, saying, “Starfield exceeded 1 million concurrent players across all platforms today. Thanks to all the players who helped us reach this great milestone and congrats to the @BethesdaStudios.”

This remarkable feat highlights the immense anticipation and excitement surrounding Starfield. It’s important to note that this milestone doesn’t indicate that the game has reached one million players cumulatively. Instead, it signifies that at some point during the day, over one million players were immersed in the captivating universe of Starfield. The cumulative player count is likely significantly higher, and fans may expect a more detailed announcement regarding this aspect in the near future.

Starfield, the latest creation from the esteemed Bethesda Studios, has made a promising debut, and comparisons are already being drawn to its fantasy-themed predecessors, such as the acclaimed Elder Scrolls series. While it remains to be seen if Starfield can match the remarkable numbers achieved by those titles, the initial reception is undeniably positive.

Gamers eager to embark on their interstellar adventures can currently access Starfield on Xbox Series X|S, PC (via Steam and Windows Store), and Game Pass. The game had previously been available in Early Access only via its Premium Edition but has since launched worldwide to all customers this week.
