Xbox: historic launch for Forza Horizon 5 and Halo Infinite multiplayer

What a historic month for Xbox! On November 15, Microsoft’s gaming arm celebrated its 20th anniversary. This month is likely to be historic with two good records set by Forza Horizon 5 and Halo Infinite’s free multiplayer and Xbox Series X / S first anniversary!

10 million pilots in Forza Horizon 5

Available from November 9, Forza Horizon 5 has managed to become in just 10 days the largest launch in Xbox history. More than 10 million players have hit the roads of Mexico in the latest title from the talented Playground Games studio.

History of player counting in Forza Horizon 5

  • November 9 (launch) – 4.5 million
  • November 13: 7 million
  • November 14: 8 million
  • November 16: 9 million
  • November 18: 10 million

Therefore, these figures refer to gamers on PC, Xbox Series X / S, Xbox One, and Cloud Gaming. Also, players who have tried the game on Game Pass are included in these statistics. Forza Horizon 5 manages to do much better than Gears 5 and Forza Horizon 4. This is simply the best release of an Xbox Game Studio game.

On Monday, November 15, Xbox celebrated its 20th anniversary with an exceptional live performance to commemorate the brand’s first two decades. During this event, a huge surprise was announced with the launch of multiplayer Halo Infinite on PC, Xbox Series X / S and Xbox One. Once again, it was a huge success.

While the (free) multiplayer mode was coming out on December 8 at the same time as the Halo Infinite single-player campaign, Studio 343 Industries surprised everyone by launching the online mode on November 15. In less than eight hours, Steam posted a record number with a peak of 272,586 simultaneous online players. Impressive figures that only concern the PC version as we are still waiting for statistics on Xbox Series X / S and Xbox One.

This is the largest Steam release of an Xbox Game Studios game and the fourth largest Steam release of all games behind Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2, and PUBG Battlegrounds. Halo Infinite’s free multiplayer mode has the luxury of being ahead of Apex Legends, Team Fortress 2, Grand Theft Auto V, and Forza Horizon 5 when it launches.

This is a great achievement by Microsoft that only bodes well for the months and years to come!
