This is not necessarily the same as the number of currently active players, but this does not really reduce performance. In addition, breaking the 10 million mark is a kind of new record: Sea of Thieves (buy now for € 15.00) Microsoft is the most successful new Xbox brand of the current generation. Incidentally, in June of last year the number was around 8.4 million players, so 1.6 million users were added within six months.
The fact that Sea of Thieves was part of the Xbox Game Pass from the start should have contributed to this success. This saved the players the actual purchase price of around 50 euros.
