Forza Horizon 2 rumors surface again over Ultima Sports Facebook post

Friday, 17th January 2014 14:21 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Forza Horizon 2 rumors have surfaced again, due to a post on Facebook by Ultima Sports stating it had extended its relationship with Microsoft for a new racing title.

The Facebook post in question was removed, but not before Worlds Factory took a screengrab of it.

Ultima Sports notes in the post that after being included in both Forza 4 and Forza 5, it signed a new contract with Microsoft for its cars to be included in a “new video game to be launched later in 2014″.

This isn’t the first time a Horizon 2 rumor has cropped up. Last summer, a vehicle technical artist at Playground Games noted he was working on an “undisclosed next-gen Forza project,” and at the time, Forza 5 has already been announced for Microsoft’s new console.

It’s possible he hadn’t updated his LinkedIn page, but it’s also quite possible another title is in the works for Xbox One.

If you follow the link to our previous post above, it also discusses how Playground Games at the time had posted an opening at the studio for a Senior Environment Artist to work on “the next edition of their successful racing title.” The listing was removed from the job agency in question, but at the time, Internet sleuth Superannuation said it matched word-for-word the listing posted on Playground’s website.

We’ll send Microsoft a mail, but don’t expect a confirmation until the firm is ready to announced something.

    I’m not ruling out a new Project Gotham game (yes please Microsoft).

    Horizon was a really good game, hope these rumors are confirmed.

    I was thinking the same thing. PGR was so addicting. MS needs to rekindle that franchise.

    The only thing that would get me to buy an Xbox One.
