‘Forza Horizon’ appears on the Xbox Store for the first time since 2016
According to IGN, the original “Forza Horizon” briefly appeared on the Xbox Store last weekend, but was quickly pulled. The game has been delisted since 2016, so it was surprising to see it available for download, if only for a few hours. It has been listed for a reasonable price of $19.99 and some gamers believe this could mean the game will be available as a permanent download soon, however, Microsoft has made no indication that this is the case and it would have easily could just be a mistake. Mistake or not, we hope Microsoft has taken notice of the excitement this has generated. We say, bring it back!
