High on Life has been continuing to perform very well on Game Pass, on both Xbox and PC, where for days now it has occupied the top positions of the most played titles, placing itself above far more emblazoned names.
As of the time of writing this news it is 1st in the Cloud streaming section, just ahead of Forza Horizon 5, Rainbox Six Siege and Halo Infinite.
We find it, however, in 2nd place on Xbox, where it’s beaten only by Minecraft, and in second place on PC as well, where it has failed to surpass the platform’s holy monster: Microsoft Solitaire Colletion (yes, the heir to Solitaire is also played by Game Pass subscribers).
Add to this the success it has made on Steam, where it was also first in the rankings among premium titles (it is currently second, behind only Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, which is on offer, however), and it does seem that Justin Roiland’s game has hit the jackpot. Clearly, its Rick and Morty-esque humor must have appealed greatly to gamers.
High on Life continues to perform VERY strong on Game Pass
Most Popular List
• #1 on Cloud Streaming
• #2 on Console only behind Minecraft
• #2 on PC only behind Solitaire (always #1 lol)

High On Life is an imperfect shooter, a raw gem that certainly does not shine with its gameplay design, but which instead proves to be extraordinarily valuable for its ability to genuinely make the player smile from the beginning to the end of the adventure, a rare occurrence in video games these days.
Of course, problems are there and Squanch Games will have to be able to learn from its mistakes now that it’s come up against the big boys, yet what a splendid future awaits Justin Roiland’s fans.
On its first really major production, this studio has managed to capture the curiosity of so many gamers, and now has plenty of time to grow and evolve in the direction of an even crazier and more unruly second chapter.
