Forza Horizon 2 Xbox 360 being developed by Sumo Digital using Horizon engine

Posted on June 3, 2014 AT 02:22am

Shortly after the Forza Horizon 2 announcement yesterday, several fans expressed their concern about the series potentially being held back by launching on both Xbox 360 and Xbox One, Microsoft has now eased those concerns.

In turns out that two developers will be in charge of Forza Horizon 2. Playground Games will handle development of the game on Xbox One, and will be using the Forza 5 engine, while the Xbox 360 version is in the hands of Sumo Digital and will use the original Forza Horizon engine.

Sumo Digital has previously worked on Xbox Fitness and Sonic All-Stars Racing Transformed, as well as handheld ports of F1 2011 and Split/Second: Velocity.

Forza Horison 2 is due to launch this fall for Xbox 360 and Xbox One, and is set in Southern Europe. The game also has a dynamic weather system and uses an adapted version of Forza Motorsport 5‘s Drivatar system.
