Since 2005 Playground Games and Turn 10 Studios have been releasing a new Forza game every couple of years, alternating between Horizon and Motorsport subtitles. That’s why since the last release in 2018, fans have been patiently waiting for the next entry in the series. But of course, with all the pandemic issues and the situation of the world, games have been falling behind the schedule. However, it is speculated that we’ll get a Forza Horizon 5 finally this 2021.
However, all the details we are going by are pure speculations originated by comments, memes, and gifs, by Jeff Grubb in the Xbox Empire podcast and Twitter. So there is little we really know about the new Forza Horizon 5.
About the game
Forza Horizon has been a widely successful game series, with every release they surprise the players with incredible mechanics and upgrades. And there's also the excellent selection of luxury cars, the amazing soundtrack, the missions and races, and the realistic tracks. These tracks are incredibly well ambient with realistic ambient and incredible looks.
Forza Horizon has been pretty attractive for both fans of racing games and car enthusiasts. With over 450 cars to choose from, all of them are highly detailed and realistic. And you get to drive them throughout incredible tracks, do some sick tricks, and explore the road and become the Horizon Superstar of a worldwide level.
As we mentioned before, all the information about this release is yet to be confirmed by the company. But the commentary by the correspondence and collaborators, and the fan theories have led to two main theories.
- Japanese Setting
For years, fans of the series have expressed their wishes for an entry to have a Japanese setting. In 2020, some leaked images of what would be the Map of Horizon 5, with the names of cities of Japan. However, it was never confirmed the veracity of the map.
In February this year, the images resurfaced, and they were deleted about an hour after they were published, and Microsoft moderators deleted every mention of them from the social media accounts. The whole image and data situation also pointed at a 2021 launch date and has led the users to believe that the game will have a Japanese setting and a launch this year.
- Mexican Setting
In April, Jeff Grubb and Klobrille, insiders of the company, denied the theory of the Japanese setting and pointed at the possibility of the game having a setting in Mexico. Additional to this, Windows Central looked over all the info in their weekly special about rumors, pointing at the latest tweets from the insiders.
However, both of them have talked about the ideas and probabilities, yet they don't dare to yet confirm all this info to the public, saying they don't want to spoil anything. The idea of a Mexican setting in Forza Horizon 5 has been gaining momentum, as this could be huge for the company since the Mexican audience of Horizon is huge.
We don't expect little from a game series that has usually been getting a 10/10 review over the years. Not to mention we are also waiting for a Forza Motorsport 5 this year, and they've had extra time to make all things new into consideration. With the new generation of Xbox here, the technical possibilities are huge.
We expect an official announcement together with Halo Infinite this E3.
