When is Forza Horizon 5 coming out? Well, at this point it is safe to say that it is a holiday 2020 launch alongside Xbox Scarlett. We say this because the unannounced title is in development as we speak and Playground Games are on a hiring spree for its  “Forza Horizon Team.”

In fact, the studio just brought in former Rockstar Games  Lead Tester  Nathan Buchanan as  Associate Producer on Forza Horizon 5.  In addition to Buchanan’s arrival at Playground Games, there are multiple job listings on Playground Game’s website.
