Here’s some stuff you must know about Forza Horizon 5 release date, locations, and everything we know so far.
Forza Horizon 5 Release Date – Coming in 2021
Forza Horizon 1 or ‘Forza’ was launched on 23 October 2012 and was published by Microsoft Studios. Its sequel, Forza Horizon 2 was launched on 30 September 2014, followed by Forza Horizon 3 that came out on 27 September 2016. Now, the most recent one, Forza Horizon 4 release date fell on 28 September 2018.
Looking at the trend, one can easily see that next in series games are getting launched after a span of a couple of years. Now, fans are speculating about any news on the latest successor to the series, Forza Horizon 5.
It was earlier rumored that Forza Horizon 5 release date will come as a surprise with the launch of Xbox Series X. But it did not happen. According to an industry insider, Forza Horizon 5 launch could happen in 2021, earlier than Forza Motorsport 8.
Though Microsoft has not given any official statements, GameBeat journalist Jeff Grubb on Xbox Empire podcast is of the opinion:
Apart from the release date, Grubb hinted at Japan to be the next possible Forza Horizon 5 Map location. Let us have a look what all other options are rumored.
Forza Horizon 5 Map Locations
Forza Horizon is a series that provides real-life experience and is portrayed in different parts of the world. Again going by the earlier trends, one might guess the location for Forza Horizon 5. Part 1 was based in the USA, Colorado, whereas Part 2 was from a fusion of France and Italy.
While the 3rd part was on Australia and the current part is based in the United Kingdom. Now, there has been a lot of Europe, America, and Australia, hence the sequel is believed to have a map inspired by Asia. And as they say, there’s nothing better to race in the world, than in Japan. This also suggests that due to those famous curvy roads in Japan, Forza Horizon 5 might also feature a better drift experience.
Forza and PlayStation
We all know that Microsoft Studios is the producer of the Forza series, an Xbox exclusive game. It can’t be played on PlayStation or other consoles. Well, it has been boldly stated that none of the Forza games would be made available for Sony PlayStation.
Forza Horizon 5 Wishlist
If we talk of Forza Horizon 4, the game is perceived to be good with Graphics and Physics, but the game certainly lags behind if we talk of the car sounds. Yes, one can’t appreciate the humming or whistling sounds of engines that much in the game. Car lovers really are fond of this and thus have some issues ‘feeling’ their rides.
Further, there and not as much customization and tuning options for cars in Forza Horizon 4 as much as there are in other games of the same time, like the NFS: Heat. A lot of fans have concerns regarding the same. So, all in all, there are a lot of hopes of having all these issues resolved in the upcoming sequel.
