Halo Infinite has been available for almost two months now, and gamers want to know how it's performing in the sale charts. Recently, Microsoft revealed that Xbox Game Pass crossed 25 million subscribers, and that the company was in the process of acquiring Activision Blizzard for a staggering $68.7 billion.

A new The NPD Group report — summarized by VentureBeat — states that Halo Infinite was the best-selling game on Xbox platforms in December 2021. It even managed to surpass the sales of Call of Duty: Vanguard that month. You can see the top Xbox games below.

  1. Halo Infinite
  2. Call of Duty: Vanguard

  4. Battlefield 2042
  5. Forza Horizon 5
  6. Far Cry 6
  7. NBA 2K22
  8. FIFA 22
  9. Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla
  10. Call of Duty: Black Ops - Cold War

According to NPD analyst Mat Piscatella, "Halo Infinite debuted as the No. 2 best-selling game of December 2021. Halo Infinite ranked as the December’s best-selling game on Xbox platforms, while also leading sales among tracked titles on PC."

The game couldn't surpass Call of Duty: Vanguard when it comes to overall count because it includes the PlayStation totals as well. You can take a look at the top games, regardless of platform, below.

  1. Call of Duty: Vanguard

  7. Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales
  8. Mario Party Superstars
  9. NBA 2K22

It's great to see Halo Infinite doing so well despite some stiff competition from other first-person shooters. It'll be interesting to see how this holds up in the future because the multiplayer component is free-to-play and doesn't require purchase.
