The company has just announced that a new Forza Motorsport installment is on the way.
The new consoles from Microsoft and Sony are already on sale and as in past generations, they will witness new projects and more iterations of long-lived series. One of the most relevant for Xbox that has already announced its arrival is Forza, the racing franchise that debuted in the last stretch of the Xbox life cycle. So far only the development of one iteration has been confirmed, but it seems that another one is also in production and would even arrive earlier.
As we informed you a few months ago, Microsoft revealed that the Motorsport franchise would be one of the first to arrive on Xbox Series X | S as an exclusive on consoles, as well as on PC. Nothing is known about its twin brother, Forza Horizon , but a new rumor indicates that it is already in development and that it would debut next year.
This was suggested by industry insider Jeff Grubb, a GamesBeat journalist, on the PSVG podcast (via Game Leaks & Rumors ). According to Grubb, Forza Horizon could be ahead of Forza Motorsport and would arrive in 2021.
FORZA HORIZON AND MOTORSPORT TOOK A 2-YEAR BREAK
Of course, there are not many details about this new and hypothetical project, but it is estimated that it will be borne by Playground Games, the studio in charge of the subseries.
In case you don’t know, the Forza series alternates its releases biannually, at least in recent years, so each year it was covered, either by Horizon or Motorsport . Grubb’s comment is a bit odd, as the last installment in the Forza series was Forza Horizon 4 , which debuted in 2018, so next should be Forza Motorsport .
However, it must be remembered that in 2019 and 2020 both franchises took a break, so it is difficult to know how they will return. On the other hand, we remind you that Jeff Grubb has hit his predictions on several occasions, the most important one has undoubtedly been that of Mass Effect: Legendary Collection, which leaked almost half a year before its official reveal.
Do you think a new Forza Horizon will debut before Forza Motorsport for Xbox Series X | S and PC? Tell us in the comments.
