A new Forza title has been revealed, and it's not Forza Motorsport 5. Microsoft has announced Forza Horizon, a spin-off of Turn 10's racing game franchise, due for release this fall.
Forza Horizon is in development at United Kingdom-based startup Playground Games. The new company has not yet shipped a game, but it has a formidable racing pedigree.
Founded by former Codemasters (F1 series) alums, Playground Games is staffed also by veterans from now-defunct studios Black Rock and Bizarre Creations. Those two studios created Split/Second and Blur, respectively, before being shut down.
Few details are available concerning Forza Horizon, but a teaser trailer for the game (embedded below) offers a first glimpse at the project. The minute-long video shows a range of locales, including a stretch of desert, open highways, and dirt courses.
