Microsoft Took Steam by Storm; Halo and Forza Among November's Biggest Releases

November turned out to be a hot month on Steam in terms of releases. The biggest revenue was generated by such productions as Halo Infinite, Forza Horizon 5, Battlefield 2042, Russian Fishing 4 or Gunfire Revolt.

Valve has released its list of November's biggest launches on Steam. The criterion was the revenue generated in the first two weeks after the release. The month was full of anticipated, high-budget productions such as Halo Infinite (multiplayer mode), Battlefield 2042, Forza Horizon 5, Farming Simulator 22, Football Manager 2022, Jurassic World Evolution 2 or Ruined King: A League of Legends Story.

In addition, several popular titles such as Russian Fishing 4, Gunfire Reborn and Dysmantle have finally left Early Access.

Traditionally, no specific sales figures or even the correct order of titles were revealed. That's why we added the estimates from the paid version of SteamSpy to the list. Unfortunately, they can be very inaccurate, so be aware. Also, keep in mind that this website gives the total number of owners of a given game, and some games were previously available in Early Access.

  2. Hearts of Iron IV: No Step Back
  3. Stellaris - Aquatics Species Pack
  4. Dead by Daylight - Portrait of a Murder Chapt
  5. Football Manager 2022 - In-game Editor

November's biggest F2P launches (by concurrent player count)

Valve also released an additional list, including the most popular F2P launches of November. In this case, the criterion was the number of players. We've sorted the following list according to the overall activity record of a given game (obtained from SteamDB estimates), and not just that achieved last month, as this gives a better idea of the level of success a given production has achieved on Steam.
