The Horizon Festival dyes the whole world from Mexico

While in forums such as ResetERA it was commented minute by minute to during the last hours of the night in Pacific time how many players dialed the game servers, Phil Spencer himself has taken advantage of his personal Twitter account to report not only this data of more than 4.5 million players —which can be consulted in the game’s own Horizon Festival—, but also to put the value of this figure into context.

It took Forza Horizon 4 a full week to surpass 2 million players. The fifth installment has tripled the active user base of the fourth episode on its debut day, says Spencer, thanking the entire community for the continued support.
