The Forza franchise has been very successful this generation for Microsoft since the launch of Forza Motorsport 5 in 2013. Today, it was revealed via the official Forza Twitter account that there have been over 7 million users that played Forza Horizon 4 which launched this past Fall.
One of the reasons why these Xbox One only titles have been getting played by more users is Xbox Game Pass which Horizon 4 launched with. The first week of launch there was a total of 2 million players that played the game, and since its October 2nd launch it has obviously gained more traction.
We have yet to hear which of those users have Xbox Game Pass or bought the game fully. Either way that is great news for the team at Playground Games to start out 2019!
