Microsoft reveals Forza Horizon 2 for Xbox One and Xbox 360, due this fall
Microsoft has officially announced plans to release the racing game sequel Forza Horizon 2 for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles for release sometime this fall. The story was originally broken by IGN, but at the moment there are only a few details on the game itself. It does confirm that Forza Horizon 2, a sequel to the 2012 Xbox 360 racing title, will once again be a collaboration with Microsoft's in-house team at Turn 10 Studios with the UK-based Playground Games.
IGN says that Forza Horizon 2 will have hundreds of cars to drive, but only one specific vehicle was mentioned: the 2015 Lamborghini Huracán. The game itself will feature drivers racing across southern Europe and there will also be a weather system to contend with in the sequel. The Drivatar feature in Forza Motorsport 5, which allowed gamers to have their AI driven counterparts race against real players, will also make an appearance in Forza Horizon 2.
The news comes just one week before Microsoft's big E3 2014 media briefing in Los Angeles on June 9. WPCentral team members will be front and center at the Galen Center in LA for the event, which should be full of major Xbox One and Xbox 360 game announcements from both first and third party developers. Of course, they will also be attending E3 itself, which is being held in the LA Convention Center June 10-12.

So Happy I can ...
If so, good luck for him. I just hope he doesn't abuse the sensationalism for titles and articles. anyway, it sounds nice Forza Horizon 2. at least 360 keep getting cool games, another reason why I always thought somehow it was pointless to rush an buy a xbox one.... not because some features aren't still there, but because 360 has many more games, and they keep getting good new ones, of ocurse xbox one has nice features but I would give it 2 years to be somehow better than 360 in every aspect.
