One of the rumors that has been swirling for a few months now is that Forza Horizon 5 is planned for this fall, while the Forza Motorsport reboot will be a 2022 or even 2023 release.
This speculation has gained more credibility over the past few days and the location for the new game may have also been discovered as well. According to a few of our sources, along with some cryptic posts from notable industry commentators Jez Corden, Jeff Grubb, and Klobrille, the game is coming this year and will be set in Mexico.
Forza Horizon 4 was released in 2018 to critical acclaim, and given Playground Games’ cycle of development, and their continued growth (with the Fable reboot responsibility as well), the timeline certainly makes sense. After all, there are few games that show off new hardware than a beautiful racing game and the Horizon series may be the pinnacle in that regard.
