Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot officially revealed the audience size of the free-to-play shooter XDefiant. According to him, the game has attracted over 11 million users.


Guillemot stated that the company has big plans for XDefiant. For example, Ubisoft hopes that in time, the shooter will become a part of major esports.

Previously, insider Tom Henderson reported that the audience for XDefiant exceeded one million people within the first hours after the game's release on May 21, 2024. A week later, the number of players reached 7.6 million. According to Henderson, these high numbers were a surprise for Ubisoft, as the company had set a more modest goal of 5 million players within a month.
