Redfall Performs Well For Xbox Despite Mixed Reviews

Despite a less than positive reception for Arkane’s latest vampire-slasher, Redfall has still managed to perform well for Xbox.

Arkane Studio’s latest release Redfall released back on May 2 to mixed reviews from critics and players alike. With reports of a myriad of performance issues, game-breaking bugs and an overall disappointing experience, it’s no surprise that it is sporting negative reviews on major review sites.

However, according to True Achievements, it is still managing to be the second-biggest Xbox game of 2023 with Atomic Heart coming in first. As it stands, Redfall has the third-longest playtime statistics, sitting behind Fortnite and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. 

Despite the reviews, this is good news for Xbox especially considering Fortnite and Modern Warfare 2 have some of the largest player bases. Redfall may have snagged third place due to it being free with the Xbox Game Pass. It seems that players are logging in to make their own mind up about the FPS.

A Disappointing Release

This announcement comes the week after Xbox Head Phil Spencer admitted he was ‘disappointed’ with Redfall’s launch. In an interview with Kinda Funny Games, Spencer claims he was “upset with himself” but aimed to “continue work on the game.”

Now it remains to be seen if Redfall can continue to stay in the charts for Xbox despite still sitting at a ‘mostly negative’ rating on Steam. It would also be interesting to see how the game would have performed in sales if players had to buy it at full price. 

With Arkane planning on improving the game, it remains to be seen if it can be saved.
