The success of Playground Games’ Forza Horizon 5 has been something to behold over the past few weeks. After passing eight million players recently, it’s now over 10 million according to the official Twitter. More importantly, it’s had the biggest first week in Xbox and Xbox Game Pass history.

It’s all the more noteworthy considering that the racing sim passed one million players even before it launched worldwide (due to those who purchased the Premium Edition for early access). On day one of release, it crossed three million players – the next day, it passed 4.5 million with Xbox boss Phil Spencer noting it was the largest launch day for an Xbox Game Studios title at that point.

As such, Forza Horizon 5 will be receiving several updates and new content in the coming months so there’s plenty for fans to look forward to. It’s currently available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC. Check out our official review here for more details.
