Forza Horizon 5 has been off to an incredible start. The game not only reached over a million players during its early access period that started on November 5, but since then and following its actual release yesterday, that number has risen to over 4.5 million players.

This amount of players has led to Forza Horizon 5 having the largest launch day ever for an Xbox Game Studios title, with a peak concurrent player base that is three times as large as what Forza Horizon 4 managed to achieve.

The information was revealed by Xbox head honcho Phil Spencer in a tweet, where he stated, "We've invested for years in Xbox so more people can play. With 4.5+ million players so far across PC, cloud & console, Forza Horizon 5 shows that promise coming to life. Largest launch day for XGS game, peak concurrent 3x FH4 high. Thank you players & congrats to @WeArePlayground".
