Xbox is the only weak point for Microsofts strong quarter

That’s not too unexpected, considering that many players are eagerly waiting for the next-generation Xbox Series X. Still, it’s not a terrific indication for the company to see such a significant sales drop during the vacation quarter. And it didn’t help that there weren’t many essential exclusives for the Xbox over that duration, either. Microsoft may be more concentrated on developing an excellent lineup of titles for its next system, which at this point includes Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 and the long-awaited Halo Infinity.

Overall, the company reported earnings development of 14 percent for the second quarter, reaching $36.9 billion. Net income, on the other hand, leapt 38 percent ($11.6 billion). We’ve said it before: at this moment Microsoft’s organisation seems unstoppable.
