Forza Horizon Devs Launching New Studio for Open World, Non-Racing Game

Playground Games, the British developer behind the Forza Horizon series, has announced that their next project would not be a racing title.

Currently code-named Project 2, the game is an open-world game with no racing elements of any kind.

Because of Project 2, Playground is opening a new studio specifically to work on this game. The new studio is within walking distance of their current office and will allow them to double their number of developers from 115 to roughly 200 employees.

No other info is known about Project 2 at this time.


Currently interning at Niche Gamer. I've been playing video games since I was three years old.
