Playground Games’ Forza Horizon 5 has been performing exceptionally well since it entered early access last week and launched worldwide on November 9th. Already having noted to have crossed 4.5 million players and becoming Xbox Game Studios’ biggest launch ever, it continues to rack up the player numbers.
GM of Xbox games marketing Aaron Greenberg retweeted the recent in-game Hall of Fame and confirmed that there have been over six million players thus far. Forza Horizon 5 is currently available on Xbox Game Pass so there’s no doubt that a significant number of its players are subscribed to the service. However, even before launch, it had over one million players in early access (via the Premium Edition and add-ons).
You all are amazing, not only did we set the record for biggest Xbox Game Studios’ launch ever, but now over 6 million players and growing, still in our launch week! 🤯💚 #ForzaHorizon5 https://t.co/kiTB3eGknp
