    Forza Horizon 2 Announced for Xbox One, Xbox 360

    http://www.gamespot.com/articles/for.../1100-6420022/

    The rumors were right. Microsoft today announced Forza Horizon 2, a sequel to 2012's original Forza Horizon coming to Xbox 360 and Xbox One this fall. The original game's developer, Playground Games, is leading development in close collaboration from Forza Motorsport 5 outfit Turn 10 Studios. Microsoft made the announcement on IGN today, noting that Playground Games and Turn 10 will share technology and "key personnel."
    According to the IGN editor who wrote the story, Playground Games is working on the Xbox One version of Forza Horizon 2, while another studio to be named later is handling the Xbox 360 version.
    Forza Horizon 2 will include "hundreds" of cars, including the 2015 Lamborghini Huracan you see above. There's also going to be a weather system, and Forza 5's "Drivatar" feature will carry forward to Forza Horizon 2. The game takes place in Southern Europe, which Playground Games says should allow for "incredibly diversity" and "amazing visuals."
    Like the original Forza Horizon, music will play a major role in Forza Horizon 2. A music festival will be the "central event" that is the focus of all the game's activities, according to the IGN report. For more on the original Forza Horizon, check out GameSpot's review.

    I wonder what else MS has for e3?

    Destiny and Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is all I need for the rest of the year.

    So Forza Horizon is a cross gen game. Wow. If I was an xb1 owner I'd be sorely disappointed by that news. I understand why they did it though since the first one sold poorly and didn't even make the NPD top ten. So this way they have 80 million 360 users plus a few million for xb1. MS not giving 360 owners any reason to upgrade to xb1 though.

    why? different teams are working on the game.
    Playground Games is developing solely for the Xbox One version, using Forza Motorsport 5's graphics engine as a baseline. The Xbox 360 version is being handled separately by Sumo Digital.
    two very good teams at that.

    regardless of multiple teams working on it, which should be a concern by itself, the game is going to be castrated from the core to fit the 360 memory. you are going to get a graphical boost, not a boost from design...which is only possible if they made it for the X1 only or the next-gen consoles. or PC and X1 or PC/X1/PS4.

    anytime, a last-gen console is involved, the core design gets castrated.

    **** yes.

    The game alreayd has a fairly massive open world, but I would have liked to seen that expanded on next gen.
    I guess we just wait and see what differences there are.

    This and a kinect-less xbone will be very tempting. Loved Horizon on the 360.

    Well seeing as how Forza 5 basically looks like an HD remake of Forza 4 imo that still wouldn't make me feel confident. And yes I've played it. Ask mynd. But we'll see at E3 I guess. It might turn out just fine.

    what likely is going to happen is that they might work on the game with a fair sense of the limitations and then downport it to the 360 (which imo would be smart). and it's possible we may see issues with the 360 version as far as performance goes.

    so they can still make the game good while making a game that is at least better than what last generation could do...just that it might not run at 30fps and 720p at all times with comparable details to other last-gen racers.

    so the X1 version might not get shafted so much because it's possible that their vision would've been similar if they had not included the 360 platform.

    think of BF4...that game was a good transitional next-gen game...it didn't do well on the PS3/360 performance-wise because they were really focused on the PS4/X1/PC versions and just trying to make a quick buck on the last-gen consoles.

    According to Turn 10 website they created it. So I guess they just handed it to Playground as they stick with Forza proper.

    Don't like cross gen - it's just hedging bets.. It's almost saying that devs don't have full confidence in the new systems at this point.

    Let's hope they're not held back regardless of different teams working on the two versions or not.

    #IndieStation4 and proud of it.

    Its their tech, but then playground tweaks it, uses same car assets, but different "world".
    FH is 30fps open world drive where ever the hell you want to.

    Its a blast, there are speed camera's littered around the place and you have to try and go past them as fast as possible, it then updates these next time you friends go online.

    I spent a fair time, just making sure I'd beat Mistercrow's speed, only to come back the next day and see he has passed me

    Horizon was great. I was kinda sorta hoping that Drivelcub was in the same mould as Horizon.

    The most time I've spent in a racing game in years.

    Someone needs to tell MS E3 is next Monday not this Monday. I'm curious as to what they are working with considering they are starting to announcetitles before. Glad they are doing this but I think maybe they should have waited on this one just another week. But maybe they got too much to show so they didn't want to spend the time announcing it and just get straight to it.

    It's a mix of games from 3rd party pubs, smaller games and exclusive games from 1st party. But you'll judge in just over a week.
