The success of Hi-Fi RUSH came as quite a surprise due to the way in which Microsoft announced the existence of the title. During the Developer_Direct celebration, Tango Gameworks appeared on the scene by surpriseannouncing not only the game officially, but also confirming that from that moment it would be available both in the Xbox Game Pass catalog and in the Microsoft and Steam stores.
The reception from the community was fantastic, taking Hi-Fi RUSH to just below Hogwarts Legacy, which has been without a doubt the most successful title so far this year. However, in the last few hours Bethesda has revealed as far as the success of Hi-Fi RUSH goes, with which Tango Gameworks has achieved reach 2 million players.
The success of Hi-Fi RUSH: two million players have enjoyed the Tango Gameworks title
This fantastic figure has been achieved taking into account both the players who have taken advantage of their Xbox Game Pass subscription to try the title, as well as those who decided to purchase the game through Steam, managing to reach numbers that served to fight for the TOP 3 of the best-selling games, as we have mentioned before.

Therefore, this does not mean that the game has been acquired by 2 million players, but it does not imply that it has been a resounding success for Hi-Fi RUSHespecially since it is a totally different project from what Tango Gameworks had been proposing since its foundation, which was more committed to the horror genre or a dark setting.
It will be necessary to see if after this the study continues betting on making games of this type, especially once it has been confirmed the departure of Shinji Mikami, founder and director of the studio. Be that as it may, if the studio’s next project, which could be The Evil Within 3, has the same finish as Hi-Fi RUSH, surely it will also end up being a success.
