Forza Horizon 4, the much-anticipated game from the house of Microsoft, has long been in the making and we have now received some new information as far as the Forza Horizon 4 release date is concerned. For fans of this car racing video game, we do have some good news and we will list out what we have learned here. Remember that we have some sources who have confirmed what we are about to note below.
Forza Horizon 4 Release Date: What We Know
A bit of background checks before we get down to the more juicy details. At the moment, there are two titles in the popular franchise. One is called the Forza Motorsport and the other is Forza Horizon. Of these two, the Motorsport version is developed by the well-known Turn 10 Studios and is published by Microsoft Studios.The Horizon range is developed by Playground Games and is published by Microsoft Studios. Right now, Microsoft wants to maintain parity between the two sub-franchisees and it is expected that the Forza Horizon 4 release date will be affected by the success or the failure of this plan.
Last year, the Forza Horizon 3 was released to great acclaim and it will be a tough act to follow up to. Now, a Hot Wheels DLC pack has been released and that too has been well-received. We have also learned that Turn 10 Studios famous software architect Chris Tector has spoken to popular gaming website GameSpot and has stated that he believes that the Forza franchise is between the Motorsport and the Horizon title and is bound to be an annual title sooner than later.
Till a year or so ago, the Forza Motorsport franchise would constantly outsell the Horizon franchise; this was fixed by the Forza Horizon 3, which was a great success and sold more units compared to the Forza Motorsport 7. This also means that Playground Games and Turn 10 are now evenly matched as far as the sales figures and, ultimately, profits, are concerned. This makes Turn 10 sit in the driver’s seat and it can make demands on Microsoft, the global giant, as well.
All this leads us to believe that the Forza Horizon 4 release date will be sometime in 2018. This means that Microsoft Studios have a lot of work to do, given the fact that hardware changes and software updates are bound to set in.
Forza Horizon 4 release date is just around the corner and with each passing day, we will keep updating you. So, watch this space for more.
