Find out just how lucrative being a Forza Horizon 5 creator can be

Unfortunately, the devs have since capped how much Forza Horizon 5 creators can earn for their creations.


Forza Horizon 5 is certainly living up to being the greatest sandbox racing sim available. It lets gamers customize pretty much every aspect to their heart's content, and the best part is that the same players can share their creations with other people and get paid for them every time their creations are downloaded. Naturally, the most popular creations bring in the most. However, just how much Forza Horizon 5 creators could earn was largely a secret - until now.

Even with the cap, Forza Horizon 5 creators earn an absurd amount of in-game credits every day.

How many credits do the best Forza Horizon 5 creators earn?

One of Forza Horizon 5's top creators just revealed how much he earned in the game from his creations. @DonJoewonSong claims that his daily earnings topped at around 250 million credits. However, Playground Games have since capped the limit. Don explains that he now only earns up to 15 million credits every day. Surprisingly enough, he insists that this amount is "much better".

When you think about it, 250 million credits a day is far too much for any player to spend. If you total everything that you can buy in Forza Horizon 5, regardless of whether it's another car or property, you'll still have more than enough left over after earning 10 million credits a day for a week.

True enough, some of the top Forza Horizon 5 creators have resorted to just giving away cars to other players. Because of how many in-game credits they have, creators are gifting anything and everything to others.

Playground Games find themselves having an issue with having very little content available for purchase relative to how much in-game credits is floating around in each player's account.

It will be interesting to see if Playground Games will do something about this. Playground could add more things for players to buy so that they can spend their credits. Even then, it's difficult to imagine just how much more content is necessary for the top Forza Horizon 5 creators to burn their money towards something that they can see in the game.

Ultimately, this isn't a game-breaking issue, by any means. If anything, it's more of a "good problem" to have.

In other Forza news, Forza Horizon 5 just set a new record for Xbox Game Studios. However, we don't think that this is going to hold up for long. Halo Infinite is set to launch on December 8 and the hype-inducing campaign trailer suggests that the flagship shooter could end up setting a new high for Microsoft.
