Palworld Xbox US player numbers briefly surpass Fortnite, as Steam sales hit 8m in six days

The Palworld-wide domination continues. Along with some truly monumental numbers on Steam, the open world survival and crafting game — which the internet has dubbed ‘Pokémon with guns’ — has seen its US numbers on Xbox briefly surpass those of perennial favourite Fortnite.

As noted by NPD’s Mat Piscatella, Circana’s Player Engagement Tracker showed that Palworld surpassed Fortnite’s Xbox numbers in the US on 22nd January. According to the tracker, Xbox players in the US played Palworld for more than 200 minutes, on average.

While this was a one day thing, and the number of players in each game was «close» (Piscatella said to consider this all a «small-sample data point for funsies stat for now more than anything else»), it is still quite remarkable. In Piscatella’s words, these are some «bonkers numbers».
