When it comes to the top racing games in the world, Forza Horizon by Playground Studios takes the top spot along with the likes of Need For Speed and Burnout.
Forza Horizon series never seems to disappoint its audience when it comes to racing exotic cars in some of the most beautiful locations around the world.
Until now, we have seen maps from all over the world, but Asia and it seems that the developers are targetting Asia as the next location for their upcoming Forza Horizon 5. Over the years, we have heard lots of rumours regarding the setting of the game, and some leaked images showed that the game might include Japan as a possible setting, and there were also rumours about featuring the Himalayas in India.
So, the rumours strongly suggest that the game will feature Asia as it is one of those locations that the developers haven’t put in any Forza Horizon games since its inception in 2012. However, a bigger question that looms over us is when will the game come out?
Although nothing has been said officially, it seems that Forza Horizon 5 might come out in the last quarter of 2020. It might be the perfect time to introduce the next entry in the popular series, with the upcoming release of the Xbox Series X gaming console.
As for the accuracy of this release, nothing can be said as Microsoft is no longer consistent with its launch cycle, which used to be Forza Horizon and Forza Motorsports coming out in alternate years. However, this cycle broke when the last Forza Motorsports title came out a year late as the studio behind the Motorsports series had to dedicate a large chunk of their time and resources to deal with the bugs in their earlier release, Forza Motorsports 7.
So, even if the timing seems to be perfect for a new Forza game, we cannot be sure if we will see Forza Horizon 5 this year. Anyway, keep your fingers crossed.
