According to a new rumor, Forza Horizon 5 could be coming to Xbox consoles next year.
Insider Jeff Grubb claims this in the most recent episode of The Xbox Empire podcast. “We saw that Forza Motorsport was teased last year. However, I think we will get a new Forza Horizon game first and it will be out next year. ‘ Grubb also claims to know where the racing game is set, but wants developer Playground Games to reveal that.
The rumor is striking, because – as Grubb points out – Microsoft already announced a new Forza Motorsport earlier this year. Where that series emphasizes realistic racing, the Horizon series emphasizes racing around in an open world.
Microsoft has not confirmed anything yet. However, Grubb is a reliable insider; he has revealed a lot of information about the new consoles this year. Fans are now speculating about the setting of the new Forza Horizon. Many gamers seem to be hoping for Japan.
