Forza Horizon 4's bugged barn finds achievement will be fixed in next update

Forza Horizon 4

If you've been playing Forza Horizon 4 a lot and chasing those achievements, there's one in particular that you might find hasn't popped. "Antique Restorer" is awarded for finding and restoring 15 barn finds, currently the total number in the game. Since four of those are seasonal and we've just completed the first go around of those, a number of people have been finding that the achievement isn't popping.

Fortunately, it's now a known bug and on the latest developer stream, Playground Games confirmed it's being fixed.

The Forza forums are full of people in the same boat, likewise, I've experienced it myself. If you look at the achievements for the game on Xbox Live, it's currently showing less than 1 percent of players have unlocked it, which at this point seems highly unlikely. The biggest barrier to gaining the Antique Restorer achievement is that you have to buy Bamburgh Castle for 10 million credits to unlock the Bentley Blower.

Exactly why it isn't popping seems unclear. Some have reported they have successfully unlocked it having only found and restored a single barn find at a time. If you went around and did a few at once, as I and many others did, this seems to be a potential cause. Either way, it's bugged, and it'll stop some people from getting the full set.

There was no indication of when it'll be fixed, but the team is now aware and will be working on getting it sorted out. It should be ready for the next update, whenever that ends up being.

Also hinted at in the stream is one of the next businesses that will be added to Forza Horizon 4 for you to buy. No details on when to expect it, but the hints suggest we'll be getting a high-speed taxi service.

If you haven't jumped in yet, Forza Horizon 4 is available starting at $60 or as part of Xbox Game Pass.
