FH3 had incredible legs, so this game will probably have too.

Well Forza Horizon 3 was on PC also but it was mess from what I have heard for at least the first 6 month this time around from what I have heard it runs a lot better from the beginning and problems that occur are fixed much faster. In the end it should sell better because it is a better game and it will end up with more content. Plus the Ultimate Edition was a better bargain this time since it pretty much includes everything except paid cars after the car pass expires.

Anyway I'm still enjoying the game a lot and today after 1000+ wheelspins I finally got the1964 Austin FX4 Taxi I think I got all the cars locked behind the wheelspins now. Already played the game more then half as much as I played FH3 so even before the first expansion gets released I already got more then my money's worth out of the game.

FH3 was still in the charts when this game launched. Having the time of my life playing FH4, 4 truly does change everything.

Actually FH4 gave FH3 a sales boost and put it back in the charts it also gave other racing games on the X1 a sales boost on its release week.

FH3 sold 2.5 million by the end of 2016 so I can see FH4 at 3 million, possibly 3.5 million by the end of 2018.
