Forza Horizon 5 revealed, gets a November release date

Take the race to Mexico in the latest entry in the critically-acclaimed Forza Horizon series.


Forza Horizon 5 got its big reveal during the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase at E3 2021 today. Though it might not be the next entry in the eagerly anticipated Motorsports series, Forza Horizon 5 looks to be just as visually scrumptious as its predecessors, probably even more so. If you’re a fan of fast cars, you do not want to blink during the following 2 minute teaser or the 7 minute gameplay trailer. So hold those eyelids open because this game looks gorgeous.

The Forza Horizon 5 release date is November 9. With the critical information out of the way and the teaser done, I hope your eyes are still moist, because here’s just over seven minutes of Forza Horizon 5 gameplay.

Alright, if you were able to stare for almost 9 minutes straight, I’ve got some statues I need you to keep an eye on and a fridge that’s a bit wily. Seriously though, Forza Horizon 5 was first unveiled at the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase at E3 2021 on June 13. The game is set to take players to the gorgeous environments of Mexico, which the official Xbox blog describes as an “ever-evolving open world”.

The Forza Horizon 5 release date is November 9 and is set to release on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, as well as on PC on Windows Store and Steam – dealer’s choice.
