Metacritic named Xbox Game Studios the best publisher of 2021 – Destruction AllStars badly spoiled the Sony rating

Metacritic has released its 2021 game publisher rankings. According to him, Xbox Game Studios overtook Sony Interactive Entertainment as the most successful publisher, with an average rating of 87.4 points for its games. According to Metacritic, this is the first time that a publisher has averaged over 85 Metascores in a year.

In 2021, Microsoft, represented by Xbox Game Studios, released 10 products – five games that were released on multiple platforms. All of them were rated positively, and three of them received an excellent rating with over 90 points – Forza Horizon 5 , Psychonauts 2 and Microsoft Flight Simulator (Xbox Series X version).

Sony Interactive Entertainment came in second place last year with an average Metascore of 81.3. The company has released 11 products, including MLB: The Show, which was released on two platforms. Of these, 10 were rated positively, but no one received more than 90 points. Sony’s picture was spoiled by the unsuccessful Destruction AllStars , which received 62 Metascore points.

Both publishers have improved their performance compared to the 2020 rankings. Then Microsoft was able to take only sixth place, and Sony – fourth. Sega was the winner that year.
