As we told you not a long time ago, Forza Horizon 5 won’t be set in Japan, so the new Mexico tidbit makes sense at some level. But of course, a mysterious chat on Twitter shouldn’t be taken as a confirmation, so a healthy pinch of salt is definitely recommended with this latest development.
That said, Jeff Grubb is one of the journalists with a good track on this kind of thing, so all these hints that Mexico could be the region to host Forza Horizon 5 might not be far from the truth.
In the meantime, Grubb still believes Forza Horizon 5 will land this year, and while some people say it could happen at E3, you’d better not hold your breath for an announcement so early. E3 kicks off on June 12 this year after being canceled in 2020 for obvious reasons, and Microsoft is very likely to take the wraps off some new titles as well.
Until the next Forza title sees the daylight, Forza Horizon 4 is certainly enjoying its time on Steam, as the more than three-year-old game is one of the most successful racing titles on Valve’s platform after its official March debut. Too bad the most recent updates haven’t necessarily been good news for gamers.
