Read our full Forza Horizon 2 review.
The Xbox 360 edition of Forza Horizon 2 differs from the coming Xbox One release, with its own game engine, developer, and set of features, while still being “inspired by the same ideas” as the next-gen console version, Playground Games confirms to Digital Spy.
The Xbox 360 version of Forza Horizon 2 is in development at Sumo Digital, a UK studio that has largely developed licensed games such as Sonic & Sega All Stars Racing and Doctor Who: The Adventure Games. It’s built on the same engine as the first Forza Horizon, while the Xbox One edition utilizes the powerful engine created for Xbox One launch title Forza Motorsport 5.
Microsoft will share more details about the Xbox 360 edition later this year, but Playground creative director Ralph Fulton has confirmed that the dynamic weather system and Drivatars will only be possible on Xbox One.
Forza Horizon 2 launches for both consoles on September 30.
