The celebrated racing game has hit 20 million accounts in just seven months.
Doesn’t surprise me In the least. Fun game.
This means that millions with GP didn't even try one of the only new games Microsoft got this Gen...
20 million is quite a few million more than the amount of new Xbox's out there... so there's actually a very good chance this game's been played on the majority of the new gen systems.
There are some 45m Xbox One consoles and 15m Xbox Series consoles as well as the PC market. Microsoft is reporting the 20m number of all games sold and Game Pass where some could pay a little as $1 to play FH5 so 20m may look good but as the article says "its not the monthly active user number". The MAU is the more important number and there's a reason their not giving it out. I played it for a couple hrs on a Xbox Series S it does look pretty but its missed the fun factor and I was bored and have not returned.
The game is on Xbox one, xbox one X on PC on Xbox series S and X on Gamepass, so its NOT only on Xbox series S and X, lets be true about that...
Lol, not everyone who subs to GP or owns a console plays racing games.
That goes for all consoles including PC.
What a silly spin on such good numbers and a great game.
Pick any PS4 game. Most PS4 owner haven't bought it. Which means exactly nothing.
They got cod and Fifa and Ubisoft they good 🥱
Every game is not for everyone. Just look at "Returnal" . Sony sold @ 20 million PS5 consoles and Returnal has sold less than 1 million copies. That means over18 million didn't bother to play and only 5% of PS5 owners picked it up.
By comparison in your opinion what game is doing better FH5 or Returnal?
Awesome game but where's the expansion?!
Fun game with plenty of lame bugs that still plague the series though.
Gotta love that after all this time, I fire up the game for the new season and it loads the placeholder season stuff. So you sit through the loading, then showing the map with all the "new" events popping up on the map. I exit out and then it loads the season again with the correct info to sit through all over again. Every. Damn. Week.
Lmao 13 disagrees. Y’all obviously don’t play this game online
What bugs have you come across?
Desync like crazy. I’ve come 2nd when i was very much in first and at the last stretch the dude just zooms right by me . More desync with players who hit me but then have shown me video proof they never actually came close to hitting me and yet on my end I got rear ended and pushed off the road. No traffic on pc online. Convoys are buggy and almost always have to be restarted after a race. For a while you couldn’t upload any livery’s because people were getting banned for no reason for their creations
Great game and deserves to be played if you like racing games.
The attention to detail in the game is amazing, sometimes while driving I stop and look at the graphics lol. Racing with friends is super fun.
Well deserved, not much of a racing fan but will always play the latest FH.
Sorry but as a fan of the franchise this one is the worst. The soundtrack is absolutly awfull and it gets boring very quick. Overall it didn t surprise me. And for these numbers... Isn t it normal if you only have 2 big AA titles releasing in a long timeframe that many own´ this title?.... It s not like there are many other to chose from.
Try it on PC and mod in the Playground Bus, you might like the game then...lol..get it? because of your name?
Forza Horizon 3 is my favourite to date. I was initially impressed with FH5 but I got bored of it quite quickly too.
I cant wait to see what Playground do with Fable. It's always nice to see a talented developer step out of their comfort zone and turn things on its head.
Forza session never fail to entertain best racing game, perfect balance of fun and sim.
The Rock... and the millions...
This is not 20 million sold. First it was numbers of players now it's number of accounts. I played the game got past the initial action stages but when main game starts it's identical to FH4 I guess I'm one of the 20 million accounts
It either sold a lot of copies or a lot of Game Pass subs. Downplay it all you want, it's an awesome game with a huge fanbase.
Willing to bet it sold about 6 million on Xbox and pc. The rest via gamepass. But how many where fully paid gamepass Vs the very common $1 for 1 month subs.
This is just a guess on my part.
Accounts? Can we get sales instead lol. Well GP probably makes up most of players.
That's what worries me. This could be the worst selling FH game in the series because of GamePass. People didn't buy FH for a dollar, they bought a 1 month subscription to GP for a dollar.
Someone’s been busy 🤣✌🏻
Wow, this is pretty amazing. I think it's time I play it again, haven't touched it for a while now. It's such a good game, one needs to play it some more for sure.
Best overall racing game series and still holds the king status 3 generations in now
Havent played this yet, damm, so lite time to play soo many games.
