The most played Xbox One games list has been updated on the Xbox Store and shows that Forza Horizon 3 Xbox One is the most played game right now, just a week after its release.
While Microsoft or Playground Games hasn’t shared any actual figures as to how many players are playing the game at a given time, the latest installment of the Forza franchise has been a huge success and there is no denying that.
Forza Horizon 3 Xbox One not only managed to beat Forza Horizon 2 in sales, despite being the predecessor being released on Xbox One and Xbox 360 compared to Xbox One and PC of Forza Horizon 3, it also had the highest launch week sales of any Forza game.
However, that’s not to say that the game’s launch didn’t have any issues. The PC version, the first major title (excluding ReCore) to support Microsoft’s Play Anywhere program, was plagued with many downloading issues, some of which weren’t fixed till after release.
In fact, those issues prevented many players from preloading the game in time or even missing out on their early access which was part of the Ultimate Edition, on which they spent $100.
The PC version of Forza Horizon 3 also had some performance issues and inconsistencies, mainly on mid-tier hardware, which many attributed to the DRM used by the Windows Store.
However, all these issues haven’t prevented it from being one of the best racing games in recent history as well as pretty much the best Forza title. With a roster of over 300 cars and many more to be added as well as amazing visuals even on Xbox One, it’s not really a surprise that the game is the most played title on Xbox One right now.
Forza Horizon 3 is currently available on both Xbox One and Windows 10, with support for cross-platform play as part of the Play Anywhere program. The first major DLC of the game is expected to be released at the end of this year.
