The long-rumored and heavily anticipated Forza Horizon 5 was finally revealed at the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase at E3 2021, and we now know that the game will be releasing on November 9th. What we didn’t know, however, was what Forza Horizon 5‘s release would mean for Forza Horizon 4. That changed today.

The update came via from the latest episode of video show Forza Monthly, in which Playground discussed what the impending release of Forza Horizon 5 meant for content development for Forza Horizon 4. As you’d expect, development of new content on Forza Horizon 4 is essentially coming to a halt. After the launch of Forza Horizon 4’s Series 37 update on June 29th, updates will no longer include new content.

“With Forza Horizon 5’s release being our priority over the next few months, we’ve made some changes to Forza Horizon 4’s monthly series updates,” said senior producer Tom Butcher. “So starting with Series update 38, players who know the game well will start to see the return of content from Series 7 to 32. Think of it a bit like a mix tape, featuring the return of some of your favorite content combined with recently added new features.”

Butcher went on to emphasize that players “should have a lot of fun revisiting these moments and seeing how you handle them the second time around. And obviously with all of our recent Series updates, you’ll have photo challenges, rewards, Forzathon Shop, and backstage voting all going on as well as usual.”

When asked if Forza Horizon 4 would still receive updates after Forza Horizon 5‘s release, Butcher said Playground “plan[s]s to make sure Forza Horizon 4 continues to be a fun experience, but we aren’t ready to share exact plans quite yet.”
