Is Forza Horizon 5 coming to PS4 and PS5? The latest game in the wildly popular spin-off racing series has already been played by more than 10 million racers, becoming the biggest Xbox game launch in history.

It’s also been a winner on the reviewers’ circuit, locking down position number one in OpenCritic’s 2021 Hall of Fame with a score of 92. Forza Horizon 5 has been a huge hit and, as PlayStation fans eagerly await next year’s Gran Turismo 7, they could surely use some of that open-world racing magic.


Does Forza Horizon 5 have a release date for PS4 and PS5? Sadly, no – the game is currently an Xbox and PC exclusive. The only way to play FH5 is on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, or PC, and this isn’t likely to change.

Published by Microsoft, there’s no reason for the company to release its games on rival systems such as the PS4 and PS5. For that same reason, we won’t see Halo Infinite, Gears 6, or the next Fable arrive on PlayStation platforms.

In our Forza Horizon 5 review, we scored the sequel a sublime 9 out of 10 with Dom saying:

Forza Horizon 5 continues the series’ legacy, usurping Forza Horizon 4 as the new pinnacle of open-world racing and as a graphical showcase for the new generation of Xbox console.

This new game in the franchise summons racers to Mexico, boasting an open-world map that is 50% bigger than the previous game.

While there’s nothing quite on par with Forza Horizon 5, PlayStation fans feeling left out can find some decent alternatives. If it’s open world racing you crave, then Ubisoft’s The Crew 2 has you covered, Dirt 5 being another great choice for those who prefer a little arcade twist when out on the track.

It may lack some of the series’ core features though Gran Turismo Sport is still one of the best racing games around.

For those wanting something a little more serious and closer to a simulation, Gran Turismo Sport will keep your engines revving as you wait for GT7. For more suggestions, check out our list of the best racing games to play in 2021.

So, what’s next for Forza? It’s been a long time since Forza Motorsport 7 launched in 2017, Microsoft having announced a sequel. This will likely act as a reboot for the series, directly competing against Gran Turismo 7 as PlayStation and Xbox clash for the racing sim crown.
