Forza Horizon 4 Already Has 2 Million Players, And It’s Just Been A Week

Forza Horizon 4 launched earlier this month and the game already has 2 million players in just one week. Not only that, players have “logged more than 822.7 million miles” in just one week.

This is according to Xbox who confirmed that just within the first week, Forza Horizon 4 has attracted 2 million players “driving around Forza Horizon 4’s Britain”.

  • More than 4.6 million hours of Forza Horizon 4 gameplay have been watched across Mixer, Twitch, YouTube and Facebook as of Oct. 9.
  • Players have logged more than 822.7 million miles
  • The community has settled in quite nicely living the Horizon Life, purchasing more than 4.1 million properties and owning more than 74.4 million cars
  • More than 377.7 million roads discovered

This news comes following the NPD Charts revealing that Forza Horizon 4 is the fastest-selling game in the franchise. According to Microsoft:

We’re thrilled that Forza Horizon 4 has been so well received by gamers across the UK. Set in beautiful, historic Britain and made by British studio Playground Games, Forza Horizon 4 is the fastest-ever selling game of the Forza Horizon series in the UK according to the latest GfK data. We’re also seeing a huge uplift in Xbox Game Pass subscriptions and engagement.

Forza is an annual series with Forza Motorsport releasing one year and Horizon the next. However, this cycle will break in 2019 as Turn 10 Studios has confirmed that there won’t be Forza Motorsport 8 in 2019. Instead, the studio will be working to improve Forza Motorsport 7.

According to the studio, they will be overhauling the “overall racing and drifting experience” along tweaking other things like physics “handling, suspension and collision systems”.

This will come as a disappointment for the fans expecting the next Motorsport title in 2019. But, Turn 10 Studios fixing their game is probably the best thing to do right now.

Forza Horizon 4 is an open-world racing title developed by Playground Games. The game is available exclusively for PC and Xbox One.
