So popular is the game in fact, that it has now been played by over 7 million people (across Xbox One and PC platforms) according to a tweet from the official Forza Motorsport Twitter account.

These numbers are extremely impressive whichever way you slice it, and perhaps not entirely surprising as Forza Horizon 4 had already surpassed the 2 million player count just one week after its launch.
Forza Horizon 4 was also the best-selling game in the series according to the UK physical charts narrowly beating 2016’s Forza Horizon 3 – which is especially impressive considering the ever-increasing digital market.
Forza Horizon 4 released on Xbox One and PC on October 2, 2018. The open-world racer features a setting based on Great Britain and boasts a new season-based weather system which alters weather and terrain conditions.
Are you still enjoying racing through the British countryside? You’re not alone.
