In general, the announcement seems to not be as surprising as a radio or television announcement. Although many people think that a game in the Halo series is certainly the biggest of all games, the sheer accessibility of Forza Horizon 5 certainly contributed to the number of players. It’s available in PC, but also in second worlds with Xbox One and Xbox X, and it’s also available in PC, as well as all other first-party titles from Xbox Game Studios. The fact that the game was announced on Xbox Game Pass certainly helped many fans with the experience of playing that game more easily, because it was enough for many fans to have an experience with it.
