Rick And Morty creator's new game is Xbox's biggest release right now

High On Life, the zany shooter from the Rick And Morty co-creator Justin Roiland and developer Squanch Games, is currently the most popular game on Xbox Game Pass.

This is an intriguing one as High On Life didn't get glowing reviews from critics when it launched for PC, Xbox One and Xbox series consoles earlier this month. Ultimately, it looked like it hinged on whether you would be happy hearing eight and a half hours of zingers that would be at home in the script for a Rick And Morty episode. Kotaku has pointed out that, while the game's spot as the most popular title on Xbox Game Pass is nothing but good news for the team, it illuminates the dearth of first-party offerings from Microsoft over the course of this year.

Right now, searching the most popular titles on the subscription service sees Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, Minecraft, Forza Horizon 5, FIFA 22, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, Halo Infinite and others trailing after High On Life. Discounting the immortal inclinations of Minecraft, the only first-party titles among these are Forza Horizon 5 and Halo Infinite and these came out in 2021.

Microsoft is very aware of this. "We have fewer games this holiday than we've had in a while when you just think about the launches," said Phil Spencer, the big boss of Xbox Games Studios, a few months ago. "Nintendo's had a good year, but I'd say, in general, we've been a little light, but I look at 2023, and there's a great lineup of games coming that I'm excited about. Getting our first real Xbox first-party games out of Bethesda, having them ship with Redfall and Starfield will be a lot of fun."
