The Forza Horizon 5 release date has been surprisingly revealed and it's a lot sooner than you might think — this brand-new racing game arrives in 2021.

Surprise! A new Forza Horizon game is coming this year. This wasn't just a teaser announcement or a short trailer, either — the people behind the game spent just over seven minutes detailing what players can expect to play in a fairly comprehensive presentation. Check out the Forza Horizon 5 Official Gameplay Demo!

Aside from some beautiful graphics enhancements, Forza Horizon 5 will have a lot of the stuff you'd expect from the franchise. There will, of course, be an engaging campaign for you to enjoy. You can also pop online and play with your friends in standard races or in all sorts of crazy challenges in the Horizon Arcade; you can read more about the game and its new features in this Xbox news post.

The Forza Horizon sub-franchise has been a nice change of pace from the usual structured racing on tracks. A new game in the franchise was practically a given, but I don't imagine many people expected to see a sequel announced anytime soon. What's even more surprising, however, is that you'll be able to play this new Forza Horizon game this November.
