Forza Horizon 3 is joining past Forza Horizon games in the Microsoft Store graveyard. The game is nearing its “end of life” and will soon no longer be available for purchase.
Even though the game will be de-listed starting on September 27, 2020, players who already own the game will still have access. This includes multiplayer and online services. The news was confirmed via Twitter:
When a game reaches “End of Life”, that means it and its DLC will no longer be available for purchase in the Microsoft Store. However, features like multiplayer and online services will still be accessible for those that own the game.— Forza Horizon (@ForzaHorizon) August 11, 2020
Forza Horizon 3 is a racing game set in Australia. The open-world environment is said to be twice the size of its predecessor. It was released in 2016 on PC and Xbox One. The game supports crossplay between the two platforms.
In the meantime, Forza Horizon 3 Ultimate Edition is on sale right now for $20.99 at the Microsoft Store. So if you’ve been meaning to pick this one up, now is the time to do so!
As is usually the case with the franchise, Forza Horizon 3 did well with critics. It averages an 87 out of 100 on review aggregator OpenCritic. Meanwhile, 95 percent of critics recommend the game.
