Forza Horizon 5 topped 30 million players five months ago! O.o


3 years of phenomenal success!

Definitely the most popular racer in gaming!

Playground Games are masters of their craft and I have no doubt that Fable has the right studio to continue its legacy!

Phil absolutely nailed acquiring such a talent studio!

True next gen Forza Horizon 6 will raise the bar even higher!

I can´t wait!

With Phil Spencer missing his Gamepass target three years in a row and the consensus that Starfield and Redfall are massive disapointment among players , it's good to see some win on Microsoft part. I second Obscure_Observer with the fact that Mario Kart 8 deluxe sales on Switch means nothing since Nintendo and Microsoft are not even in the same industry at all.

Redfall is a disappointment but Starfield is far from a disappointment. I dunno where you got that from.

well deserved, probably one of the best Forza games overall.

Good forza unlike the recent one.

I have spent many hours playing forza Horizon 5 myself and I love the crazy races where you are racing alongside planes and jet skis.

The only negative I can think of is that the in-game sound track could be better. I would also like to see nitro in the future games.

Turn the games soundtrack off and play you're own music is what I do .

Number of Players, not Sales or units sold.

It doesn't matter. All Xbox division has to do is keep players subscribed and keep the graph on the plus side. Even for 0.1%. If they can do that... they, as a whole, are successful.

Talk about a step backwards. And nearly 6 years in the making. It’s like Xbox studios complete with each other on making the worst games possible.

Playground Games is becoming the better studio with more fun games in mind.

Don't know why people are disagreeing, PGG definitely has the potential to be better, at the very least, PGG is making some of Microsoft's most polished games.

Another bogus Forza claim from the same website. Just move on people.

What's funny is this is how FM's AI has always been. Literally every single fanboy remark made against GT games since the very beginning of FM in 2005 was BS to pump up FM games and make GT look like crud.
This isn't hyperbole. Microsoft created Turn 10 to make Xbox's version of GT.
Like most stuff MS attempts... it just didn't work out.

It’s clear there is little AI for Forza just on rails go around the track and if there’s a car in front of it they will go right through it like it’s not there.
