Xbox Announces 12% Developer Revenue Share Increase for Microsoft Store PC Game Sales

Xbox Game Studios Head Matt Booty announced in an Xbox blog post that Xbox will increase the developer net revenue share of sales of PC games made on the Microsoft store by 12%, bringing the percentage up from 70% to 88%.

The change won’t kick in immediately, however, with the developer net revenue share increase beginning from August 1.

“Having a clear, no-strings-attached revenue share means developers can bring more games to more players and find greater commercial success from doing so,” said Microsoft Head of Game Creator Experience & Ecosystem Sarah Bond in a separate LinkedIn blog post.

Booty’s post covered a range of other PC-related topics as well, such as the news that Halo Infinite will have cross-play and cross-progression along with PC features like triple keybinds and ultrawide and super ultrawide screen support.

He also mentioned that 100 games had been added to Xbox Game Pass for PC in 2021 so far, and that more quality-of-life improvements such as better install reliability and increased download speeds will be coming “over the next few months” with more details coming soon.
