Forza Horizon 5, developed by Playground Games and published by Xbox, is the latest iteration of the fan-favorite racing franchise. The series originally started as a spin-off from the Forza Motorsports series by Turn 10 Studios to take an arcade-like open-world approach compared to Motorsports’ simulative closed-circuit racing.

Forza Horizon has established itself as Xbox’s flagship racing series. After visiting many exotic locations across the world, from Australia in Forza Horizon 3 to England in Forza Horizon 4, Forza Horizon 5 takes the series back to North America, i.e., the vast open world of Mexico.
