Microsoft has announced that the Forza Horizon 4 player count has already broken the two million mark after just a week on the market. The news comes after the confirmation that Forza Horizon 4 sales in the UK were the fastest in the series’ history.
The Forza Horizon 4 player count was confirmed in an official Microsoft blog post. Gavin Raeburn, studio director of Playground Games writes that “it has been one week since we launched Forza Horizon 4 and we are humbled by the overwhelmingly positive feedback we continue to receive from players around the world.” He also explains that Playground Games is “proud to say that in this first week alone, there are currently two million players driving around Forza Horizon 4’s Britain.” Speaking “on behalf of everyone at Playground Games,” Raeburn wants to “thank you for supporting Forza Horizon 4 and making the game such a success!”
Alongside the player count announcement, Raeburn also shared plenty of other stats about the game. These are as follows:
- “More than 4.6 million hours of Forza Horizon 4 gameplay have been watched across Mixer, Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook as of Oct. 9.”
- Over 822.7 million miles have been covered.
- “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.”
- Over 377.7 million roads have been discovered.
If these are the stats after just week one, who knows what the future could hold for Forza Horizon 4? Planned updates are on the way, at least. On October 25, Microsoft and Playground Games are bringing a Route Creator tool to the game, which will allow players to create their own custom races.
Forza Horizon 4 is out now on Xbox One and PC. The Standard Edition is also available as part of the Xbox Game Pass on Xbox One and PC.
