"Forza Horizon" shows up on the Xbox store for the first time since 2016
According to IGN, the original "Forza Horizon" showed up on the Xbox store briefly last weekend, but was quickly taken down again. The game has been delisted since 2016, so it was surprising to see it available for download, if only for a few hours. It was listed for a reasonable $19.99 and some players are speculating that this could mean the game will be available for download permanently again soon, however, Microsoft has made no indication that this is the case and it could easily have been just a mistake. Mistake or not, we're hoping Microsoft has taken note of the excitement this has generated. We say, bring it back!
