Microsoft keeps pushing the Forza Horizon series and it has gotten very popular over the years, enough for Forza Horizon 4 to be announced last night. The latest entry in the series will offer a high-speed racing experience across Great Britain with jaw-dropping graphics and new environmental challenges for petrolheads to overcome.

Now Ralph Fulton, creative director over at Playground Games, has shared some insight into why Microsoft keeps pushing this series so hard and revealed in an interview that Forza Horizon 3 has passed nine million players:

"I think, to date, more than nine 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."

That means Forza Horizon, a spin-off, has now become more popular than the main Forza Motorsport series and clearly indicates that the open-world half of the franchise is going nowhere. Forza Horizon 4 is releasing on September 27 and is of course included in Xbox Game Pass.
