Forza Horizon 5 Review

Microsoft Delisting Forza Horizon 4 From Stores and Xbox Game Pass

Forza Horizon 4 is being delisted on 15 December 2024. Playground Games says the game’s final season will start on 25 July and end on 22 August. After which, players will no longer be able to access the playlist screen except to see their festival playlist history.

The delisting comes due to licensing and agreements with Microsoft which means the game is leaving both the Microsoft Store and Steam. However, Playground Games has confirmed that it will still be playable. The developer also confirmed that all the Forza Horizon 4 DLC has already been removed from storefronts. Only the Standard and Ultimate versions of the game are available to purchase.

The delisting also includes Game Pass so subscribers will no longer be able to play Forza Horizon 4 through the service. Playground Games says that if gamers played the racer on the service and purchased any DLC for the game, they will be granted a full game token which they can redeem to fully own the game.

If you played Forza Horizon 4 through Xbox Game Pass and purchased DLC content for it, worry not: by having an active, full-paid (not discounted) Xbox Game Pass subscription on 6/25 you will be eligible to receive a game token if you have purchased any extra content for Forza Horizon 4 through your Xbox Message Center. Codes will start to be delivered in the following days, please bear in mind that it might take a while before you get your token.

The developer shared the planned rollout for the delisting and final content drop:

  • Starting July 25, we will have the final series for the game in Series 77 which will include the last Festival Playlist that ends on August 22.
  • After Series 77 ends on August 22, you will no longer be able to access the playlist screen, except to see the festival playlist history. When booting the game, you will be taken to the Festival Site screen rather than the Festival Playlist.
  • Even though there won’t be any more Festival Playlists after Series 77 (August 22), you will still be able to see the Forza Events screen which will include a selection of daily and weekly challenges. Completing these challenges and Forzathon Live Events will earn you Forzathon Points that you can exchange for Backstage Passes.
  • We will update the Backstage Pass Cars list with all the remaining cars that have previously been Festival Playlist Exclusive after Series 77.
