Best answer: No, Forza Horizon 5 does not support VR. Xbox consoles don't have VR support and developer Playground Games has opted not to create a VR experience for the PC version of the game.

Will Forza Horizon 5 support VR?

Playground Games' latest racing title is Forza Horizon 5, taking players on an open-world adventure through Mexico in the latest iteration of the Horizon festival. However, Forza Horizon 5 does not support VR. Playground Games has opted to create an experience that is basically the same across Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, and PC. Playground Games also noted that this isn't just at launch. The studio is not planning to support VR in any way, something that we wouldn't expect to see change.

Now, it's crucial to note that this doesn't mean Xbox first-party studios can't make VR modes on the PC versions of games. Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 supports VR, meaning that if you've got capable hardware, you experience the PC version of the game in a completely different way. With that said, the fact that Xbox as a console platform doesn't support VR means that a situation like with Microsoft Flight Simulator is the exception, not the rule.

Will Xbox ever support VR?

It's not impossible that one day Xbox first-party will start supporting VR on a large scale but right now, it doesn't seem to be a focus for the company. Sony, on the other hand, is continuing to commit to VR support, with PSVR 2 currently in development for the PS5. There aren't many details right now but Sony appears to be trying to recreate the PS5 DualSense haptic feedback and adaptive triggers for VR.

Forza Horizon 5 launches Nov. 9, 2021 for the Standard Edition, Deluxe Edition and on Xbox Game Pass. Anyone that buys the Premium Edition gets early access on Nov. 5, 2021.
