Forza Horizon 5 already has over 4.5 million players

If you thought Forza Horizon 5‘s version of Mexico, which attracts 1 million players prior to launch, was impressive, you will be amazed at the number of players the game got on its actual release date.

Som pr a tweet from Xbox boss Phil Spencer, the game has seen a number of players over 4.5 million on November 9 – the official, actual release date for the title. Many of these players were already in the game before launch, thanks to the purchase of the Premium Edition of the game (giving you some $ 99 / £ 85 back).


“We’ve been investing for several years in the Xbox so more people can play,” Spencer said in the tweet. “With more than 4.5 million players so far across PC, cloud and console, Forza Horizon 5 shows the promise comes alive.” He went on to note that this is the biggest launch day for an Xbox Game Studios game to date, and the simultaneous maximum number of players is three times higher than for Forza Horizon 4. We probably have the Xbox Game Pass and great reviews to thank for that.

Our very own Tom Orry has been soaked by Mexico’s atmosphere and enjoyed himself deeply in the process – so much so that he did not want to ruin the experience by rushing through the game to get a score on his thoughts.

In addition to incredible graphics, a deadly soundtrack and more, the game is praised for having some wonderful accessibility options – including sign language interpreters – which have caused the game to be widely praised on social media.

Forza Horizon 5 is out now and available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S and PC.
