Where is the long-awaited Forza Horizon 5 set? There have been rumors for a while that the series will be heading to Japan, but according to the latest insider info, Forza Horizon developer Playground Games has set its sights on a different location. The hinting started last week when Jez Corden from WindowsCentral commented on my wanting to visit Mexico one day, with a car emoji attached to it. Shameless leaker Jeff Grubb also came in on the hinting.
I also do my Duolingo Spanish lessons.

This is all pretty vague, of course, and can be interpreted in multiple ways – thankfully Grubb has the mystery on the last episode of the Iron Lords Podcast. When the hosts brought up Corden’s tweet, Grubb provided this response …
Let’s start with the Forza and the Mexican flag – I wonder that means? Rumor has always been about Japan, I got fake screenshots a long time ago, and that turned out not to be real. And then Jez is, “I’m going to Mexico with a car!” and immediately a few sources are “Ohhh, I wonder why Jez says that?” So yes, it is in Mexico. Yes.
Well, that seems like a pretty easy confirmation to me! Of course, take this all with a grain of salt until Microsoft actually announces Forza Horizon 5, but Mexico would certainly be a suitable (and underused) venue for an open-world racer. It is a large, wide open country with almost any landscape you can imagine, from sprawling cities to jungles, deserts and snow-capped mountains.
For those who haven’t kept up with the scuttlebutt, there has been persistent whispers that Forza Horizon 5 may be coming sooner than we think, perhaps even before the full launch of Forza Motorsport 8. Most recent rumors say the game could be unveiled at Microsoft’s big E3. -season live team / press conference.
So what do you think? Is Forza Horizon 5 heading south of the border? And will you be excited if so?
