The follow-up to 2012's Forza Horizon is coming to Xbox One and Xbox 360 this fall.

IGN has the scoop on Microsoft's announcement of open-world racer Forza Horizon 2. They say it's being handled primarily by the group that did the first game, Playground Games, though they're working with the Turn 10 guys to share tech and key personnel. 

The game takes place in Southern Europe, says IGN.

Expect hundreds of cars and a new weather system in this new one. The Drivatar system from Forza 5 is also being adapted for Forza Horizon 2.

We knew something was up when Microsoft reached out for an E3 appointment booking for a new racing game.

This Forza Horizon 2 trailer uses the word 'social' too much

Okay, maybe the snarky headline was a bit mean but the devs behind Forza Horizon 2 are really making sure that you know that the game is social and connected. Aside from those buzzwords, what does that actually mean in terms...more

The new Forza Horizon 2 cars are mostly vehicles you'll never drive in real life

The new batch of cars revealed for Forza Horizon 2 brings about a bit of a staunch reminder that open-world racing games aren't all that realistic. Let's face it -- there's a slim chance you'll ever be behind the wheel o...more

There's a Hummer H1 in Forza Horizon 2, and these 99 other cars

I hate Hummers so much. Only in America would a car that stupid get that popular. Of course, Forza Horizon 2 has the H1, the actual Humvee-looking one that isn't any less stupid for civilian driving, but at least it doesn't look like a gangly, overgrown Power Wheels like the popular H2 you still see out and about sometimes. The first 100 cars are listed here.more

Forza Horizon 2 will have a digital personal assistant named ANNA

Forza Horizon 2 is coming to the Xbox One and Xbox 360 later this year, and more details are starting to arise with every passing week. The latest development is "ANNA," the "digital personal assistant" of Forza Horizon 2, w...more

Forza Horizon 2 won't have 'token' microtransactions

Forza Horizon 2 creative director Ralph Fulton told Digital Spy that it would eschew the series' microtransaction currency, tokens. "The approach we've taken is that we've designed our game at Playground Games from ...more

Video: Bust up some guy's vineyard in Forza Horizon 2

In Forza Horizon 2, you're headed to Southern Europe. We sent one of our video guys, the energetic Mike Cosimano, to check it out at E3. He really, really dug the last Horizon and it sounds like the sequel is more of the same on a grander scale, for better or worse. That includes Drivatars. They're back, with a vengeance.more

Driveclub vs. Forza Horizon 2 at E3 2014

The Xbox and PlayStation booths are directly next to each other in the West Hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center for E3 2014 this year, which made it really convenient to compare two upcoming racing games. I put the dela...more

Why the heck is Forza Horizon 2 trying to get me killed?

Driving is dangerous. We take it for granted, but you're more likely to die driving to the airport than zipping through the air a mile high in a heavy, metal tube. I am pretty okay at driving, but I am notably not great at dr...more

Forza Horizon 2 hits Xbox One on September 30

Playground Games announced a September 30, 2014 release date for Forza Horizon 2 during Microsoft's E3 2014 media briefing this morning. The Xbox One version was mentioned specifically during the event, but the game is also ...more

Forza Horizon 2 will display at 1080p, running at 30 frames per second

So it seems Forza Horizon 2, unlike Forza 5, will not be running at 60 frames per second. While it will still display in 1080p, the open-world nature of Horizon doesn't seems to play nice with the idea of a locked 60fps rate,...more

Ubisoft reminds us that The Crew isn't coming to the PS3 or Wii U, but is coming to Xbox 360

The Wii U still isn't in a good spot with third parties. There's a running gag in the industry that something is coming to "every console ever...except!" and everyone chimes in "the Wii U." It's a shame, because it's currentl...more
