Nobody less than the gaming insider Jeff Grubb made the claim that he believed that Playground Games likely to deviate from tradition and not Forza Motorsport 8 but Forza Horizon 5 will bring. Should he Release for Xbox Series X / S as early as 2021 respectively?
This claim made Grubb on the Xbox Empire Podcast on: “We saw Forza Motorsport being teased a few months ago, but I think we might get the next Forza Horizon game first, and I think that will come this year.”
Forza Horizon 5 for Xbox Series X / S in 2021?
How likely is a release for next year? The final arcade game from PlayGround Games was Forza Horizon 4 in 2018 that recently featured new visual effects and increased performance on the Xbox Series X/S has been improved. The Horizon series has stuck to its 2-year release cycle since 2021. So a new edition would already be overdue, but due to Covid-19 it is not the first release postponement this year.
However, will Forza Motorsport 8 a “reinterpretation” of the series, as developer Turn 10 recently announced. In a trailer while it was live streaming the Xbox Games Showcase in July 2020, the racing game was announced as an exclusive Xbox Series X / S title.
So far nobody else has over Forza Horizon 5 written or spoken, hence the statement is from Jeff Grubb only to be understood as an assumption.
Whether we really have the title in 2021 for the Xbox Series X/S will see is uncertain. So far has PlayGround Games not yet commented on the rumors.
