    Microsoft Xbox revenue down 7% in Q4, but it’s the best fiscal year ever



    Microsoft today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2022 covering the period April 1, 2022 to June 30. The press release provided an update on the performance of the More Personal Computing business, which includes Microsoft’s gaming division and the Xbox brand.

    As reported in a tweet by analyst DomsPlaying, the Xbox division recorded a 7% decline in the last quarter of the fiscal year. A figure that does not bother Microsoft as it is part of the company’s forecasts. What’s more, the $3.45 billion generated this time of year also represents the second-best fourth quarter for Xbox ever.

    Despite solid growth in Xbox Game Pass subscribers, content and services also saw a 6% drop in revenue. Again, we’re talking about results in line with Microsoft’s projections for this stage of the year.

    Even more reduced (-11%) revenue from the sale of equipment. We know the semiconductor crisis is far from over, and until supply can meet consumer demand, the numbers will depend entirely on Xbox Series X availability | S.

    Summing up the overall trend over the past 12 months and given the recent declining results, DomsPlaying noted that this was the best fiscal year ever for Xbox, with an estimated annual revenue of $16.22 billion. According to the analyst, 77% of revenue comes from content and services.

    As usual, it’s worth recalling that Microsoft doesn’t use the traditional April to March fiscal year, but instead sticks to its own July to June calendar, so the results described here are for the fourth quarter, not the first.
