If you haven’t noticed, Forza Horizon went free this month for Xbox Live Gold members thanks to the Games with Gold program and now it appears as if the game is actually being delisted – which probably explains why the game and all its follow-up DLC was made free. The Forza team announced this in an official news post.
While we’re reveling in the euphoria of launching a brand-new Forza game, I do have an important update regarding the original Forza Horizon. On October 20, the original Forza Horizon for Xbox 360 will reach “End of Life” status. That means that the game and its associated DLC will no longer be available for purchase. Players who own Forza Horizon before that date will still be able to download and play the game and its associated content as normal. After that date, however, Forza Horizon and its associated DLC will no longer be for sale.
If you’re an achievement hunter or just a collector, you might want to get it before the game reaches ‘End of Life’ status.
