Forza Horizon 4 is a smash hit according to a new press release from Microsoft. Within its first week of being released, it has already garnered 2 million active players who have logged 4.6 million hours of gameplay so far. Microsoft also revealed that Forza Horizon 4 is the highest rated Xbox exclusive title to-date, which is based on Metacritic’s aggregate review score system.
