Playground likely working on Forza Horizon 2 at the moment – report

Friday, 2nd August 2013 21:32 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Playground Games may be working on a sequel to Forza Horizon if a job posting for an “unnamed Midlands-based racing developer” is any indication.

According to the listing, the unlisted firm is looking for a Senior Environment Artist to work on “the next edition of their successful racing title.” The listing has since been removed from the job agency, but Superannuation says it matched word-for-word the listing posted on Playground’s website.

The contract position states it will be a 9 month tenure, so Super surmised whatever the possible sequel is could arrive sometime during 2014 after Forza 5 is released.

Furthermore, Playground’s creative director and studio director have noted on their CVs they are “working on an exciting unannounced title for Xbox One.”

Playground is also looking for staff to pad its mobile games development team.

    Wow at some comments here….so we’re always gonna complain now when a sequel comes out? Horizon was a damn fine and very fun game, I say hell yeah to a second one.

    @12 no, they’re complaining because it’s an xbox exclusive. If it were a playstation exclusive these same posters would be singing it’s praises. Lol.

    Ok your both fanboys now that is clear to me: so arguing with major lunatic is pointless now, thanks for that.

    Hint: if you can’t prove it then just shut up.

    I don’t get the milking comment either.
    Horizon is completely independent from the main series and for all intents and purposes could be considered a relatively new IP.

    Pretty much the only reason it has Forza in it’s name is because of brand and marketing purposes.

    Now that is how you address people instead of front up madness/conspiracy theories see 13/14.

    To be fair i’m just having fun with it (video+smilies face) and note i said “some” not all. I don’t think most of those franchises he listed are being milked and Forza its on the verge.

    If anything, this is the direct competition to DriveClub. Looking forward to next-gen arcade racers.
    Seriously, milking? Its not like they are releasing 8 games of a single brand in 1 year like their competition does.

    If it sells make more and sell more. Business 101. Once you make it and the sales start to decline stop making it and make a different product. Business 102. Sales keep declining and you keep producing. Well that’s just plain stupid. Or as y’all say “milking”. Forza been selling so make the money while its still hot.
