Forza Horizon reappears on the Xbox Store 6 years after being delisted – IGN

Six years after being delisted, the original Forza Horizon briefly appeared in the Xbox Store on Saturday, according to a number of Twitter users who successfully accessed the popular Xbox 360 racing title.

Forza Horizon was originally delisted from all store facades in 2016, but eagle-eyed fans reported that the game showed up for $ 19.99 for a short while before disappearing again a few hours later. It’s unknown if the listing is an indication that Xbox is planning to bring the game back to the store, or if someone at Xbox just made a mistake that caused it to reappear for a while.

Either way, the final removal of Forza games is a common practice for Microsoft, as third-party licensing agreements run alongside the series’ wide range of cars, tracks, songs and more. In September 2021, Forza Motorsport 7 became the latest game in the franchise to be delisted – 4 years after it was released on Xbox One.

Developer Turn10 is working hard on an upcoming reboot of the mainline Forza Motorsport series, though news of the game has been flowing out very slowly since its original unveiling back in 2020. What we do know so far is that it will serve as a fresh start for the franchise, that utilizes the power of the Xbox Series X – meaning the game does not land on the Xbox One. It will also launch on Xbox Game Pass on day one.

Meanwhile, fans can get their fingers in the team’s well-received sandbox racer Forza Horizon 5, which we gave a perfect score in our review and call it “a deep and nuanced car nirvana for revheads and auto-nerds to endlessly collect, pill, and experiment. “
