GamesBeat’s journalist, Jeff Grubb, has made the claim that Forza Horizon 5 could be the first game to release on Xbox Series X/S before the next Forza Motorsport game.
Speaking on the Xbox Empire podcast. Grubb went onto say:
“We saw Forza Motorsport get teased a few months ago [but] I think we might get the next Forza Horizon game first and I think that might be coming this coming year,” he continues.
“They’re in a weird situation where for some reason Playground says it does seem like they may be ready to go first. I think I know the setting, but I’m going to let them announce it.”
Forza Horizon 4 has recieved a optimised update for Series X back on launch day, Nov 10th. The optimised update for Horizon 4 has been met by wide praise, even Digital Foundry said “Forza Horizon 4 isn’t just one of the best Xbox exclusives, it’s also one of the greatest racing games ever made.”
