Forza Horizon is getting a sequel. Aptly named Forza Horizon 2, it's due this fall for Xbox One and Xbox 360. Playground Games, the studio behind the first Horizon, is taking the lead, but it will also be collaborating with Turn 10 Studios from Forza 5.
We had previously seen leaked concept art and rumors pointing to it taking place in the deep south. As it turns out, according to IGN, that was only half-right. Instead, this one will be set in southern Europe, which the team says lets them give the environments "incredible diversity" and "amazing vistas." It will al revolve around a music festival.
As a Forza first, Horizon 2 will introduce a weather system. Hundreds of cars are on-tap, naturally, with the 2015 Lamborghini Huracán serving as its headliner. It will also use the "Drivatar" system from Forza 5.
