    Forza Horizon dev working on 'visually stunning' racer

    Forza Horizon 2 in development for Xbox One?

    Playground Games, the studio behind last year's open world racer Forza Horizon, is developing a "visually stunning", "genre-leading" racer, according to job ads listed by the developer.
    The game is referenced by multiple ads on Playground's website, which ask for candidates who are "fanatical about cars and car culture, with an encyclopaedic knowledge of the auto industry... [and] a strong working knowledge of vehicle mechanics and car setup", and with an "excellent working knowledge of, and a real passion for, the racing genre".
    However, the listings don't make it particularly clear as to whether the title is intended for current or next-generation consoles.
    "Working at senior level in a team of rendering engineers, you will be responsible for implementation of cutting edge rendering techniques," reads an ad for a Rendering Engineer. "Engineers with in-depth knowledge of current-gen consoles are ideal for this role, as you will innovate on this technology to produce a visually stunning title."
    But whichever console the game's intended for, don't get your hopes up for it arriving any time soon.
    A further ad, this time for a Vehicle QA Technician, suggests that the game may not arrive until late next year, stating that the team is "looking for an embedded Vehicle QA Technician to join us on a contract basis for a period of 9 to 12 months, starting in Q3 2013".
    Forza Horizon launched last October on Xbox 360, and left you so impressed that you rated it one of your top games of the year.
    Microsoft has yet to announce plans for a sequel.

    Hopefully it will sell better than Forza Horizon did. http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/927749-xbox-360/64568755

    PGR has been in developement for few years they may show it at Gamescom. A while back it was rumoured to be a launch title.

    On Forza 5 a private demo was shown to developers using Dx11.2 PRT Tile Resources and Ray Trace Path so we may see these in Forza Horizon.

    uuummmmm...Fried Beer iis a reality.

    do wish MS would stop being so secretive on the hardware/software set up for Xbox ONE and just spill the beans already.

    No devsnname given but thid guy is very reliable....back in March he said there would be aBF4 demo at e3 on xbox one hardware that will match the pc demo at GDC 2013 . Also said in Yjune that Watch Dogs would look and play better on xbox one.
    The demo shown privately to developers will be the final versuon of the game.

    They're not owned by Microsoft are they? I hope not.

    As from the stellar Forza: Horizon, if they made a new racing game that was on the PS4 I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

    LOL

    Any way, if it is Horizon 2, that would be awesome. Horizon 1 was the best open world racing game this gen. Looking for a repeat for the new gen.
