Forza Horizon 2 coming this fall for Xbox One and Xbox 360

Drivatar comes over

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.
