Forza Horizon 2 is an open-world racing game for Xbox One and Xbox 360 which takes you all over Italy. The title launched in 2014 and garnered great reviews. However, as is often the case with racing games, music licenses expire and it's easier to stop selling them than go through the renewal process. At the end of next month, Forza Horizon 2 will be removed from the Xbox Store. If you already own the game, you can still download it even after it's delisted. New customers just won't be able to purchase a digital copy. There are plenty of discs lying around at retailers like Amazon and GameStop.
Turn 10 Studios' Brian Ekberg issued the following statement about Forza Horizon 2 on the franchise's website.
A heads up for the Forza community: Forza Horizon 2 will reach 'end of life' status on September 30. That means that the game and its associated DLC will no longer be available for purchase. After September 30, players who own Forza Horizon 2 will still able to download and play the game and its associated content as normal. However, Forza Horizon 2 and its DLC will no longer be for sale. Forza Horizon 2 is currently available as part of August Games With Gold so, if you haven't played it already, now is a great time to grab it.
Be sure to download Forza Horizon 2 through Games with Gold if you haven't already. It's free for the entire month!
