Last week High on Life, the latest title from Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland and Squanch Games, launched to somewhat mixed reviews. It seemed like the game may fall short of expectations, but you should never underestimate the power of Rick and Morty fans. It seems High on Life has found its audience after all, as it’s flying impressively high on both the Xbox Game Pass and Steam charts.
High on Life has passed Minecraft to become the #1 Most Popular Game on Game Pass. Incredible result given the staying power Minecraft and Forza Horizon 5 have at the top of the chart

High on Life is currently the most popular game on Xbox Game Pass, pushing aside reliable list-toppers like Minecraft, Forza Horizon 5, and Halo Infinite. Meanwhile, High on Life was the #1 selling game on Steam last week (second to only the Steam Deck in dollar sales). High on Life has since slipped one spot behind Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II on the Steam charts, but that's largely due to the latter being on a 15 percent sale, so Squanch Games can still hold their heads up high.
