Forza Horizon 3 has been a smashing success for not only Microsoft but also the developer Playground Games. After the game received critical acclaim becoming the best-rated racing game this generation, its sales aren’t slowing down any time soon as the developers have shared a new milestone for the game.
In an interview with IGN, creative director of Forza Horizon, Ralph Fulton has revealed that there are now 9 million players in Forza Horizon 3 across the PC and Xbox One.
“I think, to date, more than 9 million people have played Forza Horizon 3, but if you’d told me right back around the launch window that that was going to be how it panned out? That’s astonishing; that was beyond wildest dreams territory for this team.”
Forza Horizon 4 has been confirmed for a release later this year. It is also being developed by Playground Games and they are taking their next game even further with the inclusion of seasons. The game is already a technical marvel on the Xbox One X running at native 4K so it will be interesting to see where they take the sequel. The location of the game was confirmed to be UK at Microsoft’s E3 2018 press conference.
Forza Horizon 4 will launch for the PC and Xbox One on October 2nd, 2018.
