At this year’s E3, racing fans were treated to a treat when Playground Games announced the latest in its Forza series, Forza Horizon 5 . The spin-off of the street racing series of major motorsport titles sees players hitting the streets of Mexico on November 9th. Although this title brings new features to the series, what remains the same as other Forza games is that it’s going to be available only for Xbox and PC players .

Since Forza Motorsport originated in 2005, this series has been developed by Turn 10 Studios, while Playground Games has taken care of the Horizon series, all published by Xbox Game Studios. Unfortunately, for those who exclusively own PlayStation consoles, that means the games have been inaccessible for years. In fact, this series only got its first PC game in 2015 with Forza Motorsport 6 .

Updated December 10, 2021 by Greysun Morales : It’s been a month since Forza Horizon 5 launched on PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. While the game has received positive praise from critics and fans alike, Microsoft has yet to announce Forza Horizon 5 is coming to PlayStation platforms and, sadly, that’s not likely to change any time soon. Forza is a Microsoft-exclusive franchise, and it’s unlikely to come to other places. If that changes at all, this post will be updated with the new information. As for now, Forza Horizon 5 is not coming to PS4 or PS5 .

Is Forza Horizon 5 coming to PS4/PS5?

With exclusives such as MLB The Show finding its way to Xbox, PlayStation gamers were likely hoping Forza might come to their console. But, right now, Forza remains out of reach for PlayStation gamers. Unfortunately, that means they don’t have to look forward to Forza Horizon 5 releasing on November 9, 2021.

PlayStation games like Forza Horizon

Although there is no way to play Forza game on PlayStation, those gamers definitely have other options. PlayStation offers several alternatives for those looking to shake off the itch of racing games. The Need for Speed ​​franchise is a great option for PlayStation gamers. Need for Heat Fast is available now on all consoles, and it throws players into an open-world environment known as Palm City.

In a similar vein, Gran Turismo 7 premiered on Sony’s PlayStation 5 reveal stream on June 11, 2020. The Gran Turismo series has always been a PlayStation exclusive, and its final title will be coming to PS5 in 2022. None of these series doesn’t exactly replace the racing style in Forza Horizon 5, but both game series are solid standards in the genre. The new builds should work relatively well for PlayStation gamers looking for a replacement for Forza Horizon .

Forza Horizon 5 brings players back to North America for the first time since 2012. Players will be able to travel across Mexico, drive along beautiful beaches, and discover ancient ruins along the way. The game also introduces the city of Guanajuato with its tunnels, winding alleys and many plazas.

This game is expected to feature the biggest map yet in the Forza Horizon series. On top of that, the developer promises a new Expedition mode and a new feature called Events Lab. This feature allows players to create their own game modes, experiences and races. Unfortunately for PlayStation gamers, it seems unlikely that this series will ever cross consoles.

Forza Horizon 5 is available now for PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
