Forza Horizon Announced

By Dave Horobin, 4 years ago
During Microsoft's Xbox Spring Showcase in San Francisco last week, Turn 10's Creative Director, Dan Greenawalt lifted the hood on the next chapter of the Forza Motorsport franchise.

The game titled Forza Horizon is being developed by independent, UK based studio Playground Games in collaboration with Turn 10 Studios. Founded in 2009, Playground Games was formed by the same management team that brought us award-winning racing franchises such as TOCA, Colin McRae Rally, and DiRT.

Over the past two years the studio has enhanced its core team with experienced developers from Bizarre Creations, Black Rock Studios, Slightly Mad Studios, Criterion Games, Rockstar North, and Ubisoft Reflections, among others. Today, Playground employs more than 100 staff at its headquarters in Royal Leamington Spa, working exclusively on Forza Horizon.

Forza Horizon is scheduled for release this Fall.

Thanks to all of the community members who suggested this story.
