The Xbox One and Xbox 360 racing sequel was announced this week for a 2014 release and is being developed by Playground Games, with support from Microsoft's Turn 10.

Horizon 2 will take place in Southern Europe with gamplay again centralised around a music festival. A long-awaited weather system will make its Forza debut in the game and Forza 5's Drivatar system is also being adapted.
