Forza Horizon 4 is being delisted on Xbox and PC later this year

Playground Games has announced that 2018’s Forza Horizon 4 will be pulled from the Microsoft Store and Steam in December 2024 due to its licenses expiring.

The details:

  • In a new blog post, the developer confirmed that the game will no longer be available for purchase beginning December 15 and will also be removed from Xbox Game Pass. The game's DLC, Fortune Island, and Lego Speed Champions have already been pulled, so players must purchase the Ultimate Edition of Forza Horizon 4 to own it.

  • Game Pass players who have purchased DLC will also receive a "game token" that will allow them to access the base game beyond December 15. It will also be sold at a discounted price in the coming months, though it is unclear whether the current 80% discount on Steam will be matched on Xbox.

  • According to Playground, the reason for the game's delisting is "licensing and agreements" with its partners, which is most likely related to its soundtrack, which features many licensed songs, or the use of real-world car brands.

  • Those who own the game and its DLC will be able to download them after December 15, and the online services will not be shut down. However, the current Series and Festival Playlist will be the game's last, and once it ends on August 22, players will only be able to access the inventory through the Playlist section of the menu.
