Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Forza Horizon 5 breaks Xbox Game Studios launch day record, 4.5m+ players in less than 24 hours

Deserved! Game of the year for me. I don't want to know how they plan to top Horizon 5 in the next entry. Even more excited for Fable now.">"><img src="

Bought the Premium edition which gave me early access. Faptastic game! Especially with all of the lewd paint skins you can get for your car.

Impressive! Very nice.
Always great to see records being broken.

The benefits of branching out

I think it's inevitable that the "number of players" figures will rise with gamepass subscriptions so not too surprising.

Probably 25m+ have access to this game for free.

Gamepass only had 10m subscribers at the start of 2020 so when Forza Horizon 4 came out in 2018 it would no doubt be less than 5m.

So yeah it absolutely should destroy FH4 player numbers.

Im racing with someone who uses a wheel, playing coop saves him on drift/dirt races
