Forza Horizon is one of the most popular casual street racing series that are available on the market. The journey of this series started with the release of its first title in 2012. It was developed by Playground Games & was published by Microsoft Studios.

After the release of Forza Horizon in 2012, it’s subsequent titles were released in 2014, 2016 & 2018. Well, after observing this release pattern one will likely predict that the publishing studio is releasing a new title every two years.

Unlike Forza Motorsport, the Horizon series is based around the Horizon festival & offers a more relaxed gameplay experience. Forza Horizon 2012 featured the Horizon festival on Colorado map. This festival has moved to different locations in the sequences of the game title.


Now Forza fans are wondering & predicting the next possible location of the upcoming & unannounced Forza Horizon title. Well, as mentioned above 2012 title featured the United States ( Colorado) then in Forza Horizon 2 the festival moved to Southern France and Northern Italy. Forza Horizon 3 featured Australia & the latest one Forza Horizon 4 featured the United Kingdom.


Well, the Forza series has already featured three continents in the previously released four titles, so the next title might feature an Asian, South American, or African region. Well, Forza fans are predicting that Japan can be the next place for the Horizon festival.
