Fornite has been basically the number 1 game for the past double digit number of months.

Now a new crown for number 1 is finally being given to a different game. And this prized slot goes to Xbox’s own Gears 5.

Gears is trending number 1 most played beating out GTA 5, Fornite, and Call of Duty right now.

This proves the value to Microsoft for XBOX Game Pass. The fact that everyone with game pass can play Gears 5 completely free on day 1 helps make Xbox originals like Gears 5 very very popular.
