Although Microsoft experienced a 7% decline in hardware sales for Xbox between July and September 2023 compared to the same quarter in the previous year, the overall gaming revenue continued to rise. Xbox services and exclusive offerings saw a 13% increase compared to Q1 2023, while gaming revenue grew by 9% year-over-year.

Strong Prospects with Acquisition of Activision Blizzard King

It is important to note that these financial results do not include the impact of Microsoft’s recent acquisition of Activision Blizzard King, which was completed on October 13, 2023. This acquisition is expected to significantly boost Xbox’s financial performance in the next quarter, especially with the highly anticipated launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 scheduled for November 10, 2023.
