Forza Horizon 5 is breaking records for Xbox Games Studios, becoming one of the biggest releases for Microsoft this year. It appears many players are taking a keen interest in the game as it’s hit 6 million players and it’s still Forza Horizon 5’s launch week.
Xbox Games marketing GM Aaron Greenberg stated that the game set the record for Xbox Game Studios’ best launch week ever. It should be noted that players have had early access to the game since November 5th if they purchased the Premium Edition. As for everyone else, it officially launched on November 9th. Either way, it’s a rather impressive feat for just a week on the market.
Of course, Forza Horizon 5 is available on PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S, but is also included in any Xbox Game Pass subscription. This has likely helped it reach more players in such a short time.
Xbox’s next big release is Halo Infinite which is scheduled to launch on December 8th. It will definitely have a great chance of outpacing Forza Horizon 5, but of course we’ll have to wait and see.
