Microsoft is having a good time on Steam right now

Grounded! Microsoft Flight Simulator! Sea of Thieves! More!

Microsoft is having a good time on Steam right now, with a number of its game in the top-sellers list.


Obsidian’s Grounded is in fact the top-selling game on Steam’s platform – at the time of this article’s publication. Perhaps that isn’t surprising given the game has seen over one million players in the first 48 hours of release.

The second top-selling game on Steam is another Microsoft game – this one not yet out. Microsoft Flight Simulator, which Martin is currently into in a very big way, is currently flying high on Steam.

There’s more: Halo: The Master Chief Collection, recently buoyed by the release of Halo 3 on PC for the first time, is in the top 10 best-selling games on Steam list. Rare’s wonderful Sea of Thieves isn’t far behind.

There are plenty of people playing Microsoft games on Steam, too. Both Sea of Thieves and Grounded are in Steam’s top 100 games by current player count list. Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition is also in there.
