Forza Horizon 4’s Oct. 2 release isn’t too far away, and sometimes it’s nice to revisit some older games from a series in the lead up to the new one. If you were planning on revisiting Forza Horizon 2 by downloading the digital version, you better act fast, as the game and all of its DLC is being delisted from Xbox Live on Sept. 30.
Luckily, the game is currently available for free as part of Games With Gold for the month of August. Xbox Live Gold members can download the 10th Anniversary Edition of the game free of charge until Aug. 31. It can be downloaded here.
The following statement was posted on the Forza Motorsport website:
A heads up for the Forza community: Forza Horizon 2 will reach “end of life” status on September 30. That means that the game and its associated DLC will no longer be available for purchase. After September 30, players who own Forza Horizon 2 will still able to download and play the game and its associated content as normal. However, Forza Horizon 2 and its DLC will no longer be for sale. Forza Horizon 2 is currently available as part of August Games With Gold so, if you haven’t played it already, now is a great time to grab it.
As a reminder, people who have already downloaded the game (including its DLC) will still be able to redownload it at any time after its delisting. Also, this will not affect physical copies of the game in any way.
