Microsoft has offi­cial­ly announced the next Forza Hori­zon game, and it’s arriv­ing right towards the end of the year. Forza Hori­zon 5 is sched­uled to launch Novem­ber 9th, 2021, for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC. Game Pass mem­bers will get the stan­dard ver­sion, with the option to upgrade to Pre­mi­um with an add-on.

The game is set in Mex­i­co, which is just the larget inter­na­tion­al set­ting for the game, fol­lowed by Britain (Forza Hori­zon 4), Aus­tralia (Forza Hori­zon 3), France/Italy (Forza Hori­zon 2), and Col­orado (Forza Hori­zon 1). It’s said this set­ting is the most diverse yet, as the Mex­i­can land­scape will span deserts, jun­gles, ruins, canyons, beach­esm and even a vol­cano cov­ered in snow.

Forza 5 is also bring­ing back the weath­er-shift­ing mechan­ic, with dynam­ic sea­sons that change week­ly. The new Hori­zon Arcade lets you take on rac­ing chal­lenges, plus you can cre­ate your own rules in the Events Lab.

Turn 10 Stu­dios is not work­ing on just Forza Hori­zon 5, but they are also cur­rent­ly devel­op­ing Forza Motor­sport 8, though no release date was announced.
