Developer Turn 10 has announced that it’ll be sunlighting Forza Horizon 2 and will be removing the title from the Xbox Store next month
With Forza Horizon 4 on the… horizon, Turn 10’s Brian Ekberg has quietly announced that it’ll be putting Forza Horizon 2 to bed. Spotted at the bottom of the latest Forza update post, Ekberg revealed that the game will no longer be on sale from September 30.
“A heads up for the Forza community: Forza Horizon 2 will reach ‘end of life’ status on September 30. That means that the game and its associated DLC will no longer be available for purchase,” Ekberg said. “After September 30, players who own Forza Horizon 2 will still [be] able to download and play the game and its associated content as normal. However, Forza Horizon 2 and its DLC will no longer be for sale.”
It’s a pretty surprising announcement considering Forza Horizon 2 is a part of this month’s Games with Gold line-up, though that being said, the game will still be playable, just the base game and all of its additional content will no longer be sold.
You don’t have too long to wait until you can get your hands on the next Forza game, Forza Horizon 4 which speeds into stores on October 2. It’ll be whisking players off to the quaint countryside of the United Kingdom and could be host to over 400 vehicles.
