forza horizon 4 getting delisted: play before december

Jun 25, 2024 5:23 PM

Forza Horizon 4 will be delisted from digital stores on December 15, 2024, as announced by Playground Games. Licensing agreements and other factors necessitate this move, similar to the delisting of Forza Horizon 3 in 2020. Fans can still purchase the game and its DLC at discounted rates before it's removed. Despite the delisting, existing owners will retain full access to the game and its online features, and physical copies will remain functional. The final in-game series will occur between July 25 and August 22, signaling the end of an era for this beloved racing title that originally launched in 2018 and is set in the UK, known for its dynamic seasonal changes and immersive gameplay.

Why is Forza Horizon 4 being delisted from digital stores?

Forza Horizon 4 is being delisted due to complex licensing agreements with car manufacturers and music creators, which Playground Games needs to adhere to.

Released in 2018, Forza Horizon 4 brings players into a beautifully rendered UK setting that uniquely features changing seasons, which affect the gameplay and environment. It received high praise for its innovative and constantly rewarding racing experience. Even though Playground Games has advanced to Forza Horizon 5, Forza Horizon 4 remains a strong title in the series, offering plenty of enjoyment for current and new players alike. Make sure to grab it before it's delisted to keep enjoying its rich features and multiplayer modes.

It's a bummer that Forza Horizon 4 is getting delisted, but it's a good reminder to grab it while you can, especially for the complete experience with the DLCs. Even after the delisting, it's cool that existing owners will still have full access—those UK roads and changing seasons are too iconic to miss
