Most successful launch title from Xbox Game Studios


Not a day without a new message about the successful arcade racer: Today Microsoft and Playground Games are happy about a fantastic start to Forza Horizon 5. Xbox boss Phil Spencer noted on Twitter that over 4.5 million players are now playing the new Open- Have tried world racing game. At the same time, it is the most successful launch that an Xbox Game Studios title has ever had. According to Phil Spencer, the record of simultaneous players on the day of the release – in direct comparison to the predecessor – was exceeded by three times.

However, Microsoft has not given exact details about the numbers. Forza Horizon 5 hit a record close to 70,000 players on Steam on Tuesday. But this is only a small part of the community.

As we reported, the early access start last week was already a huge success for Microsoft.

Forza Horizon 5 is available in stores for Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One and PC. In addition, the racing game in Xbox Game Pass can be played via the cloud. In the test, we have already dealt extensively with the exceptional racer.
