Playground Games has released a hotfix for the “infinite save” issues that have blighted Forza Horizon 5 on Xbox Series X|S since last week’s update.

The bug was a particularly frustrating one, as players on Xbox Series X|S could find themselves stuck in a save screen when acquiring cars, saving car tunes, or saving car liveries on the new generation consoles. The disappointing factor is that, with the update’s release last Friday, it meant that it took Playground Games the whole weekend to investigate and respond. After investigating and testing a fix on Monday, the hotfix was pushed live yesterday night specifically to Xbox Series X|S consoles.



The new version number for the game on Xbox Series is 3.416.408.0 with a solitary patch notes:

  • Fixed an issue that would cause some players to become stuck when attempting to save on Series consoles

Beyond that, Playground Games also revealed a slew of new cars coming to the game in an hour-long stream. Split between the next two month-long series, the cars are:


  • Ferrari 575M Maranello
  • Ferrari 599 GTO
  • Ferrari J50
  • Ferrari Monza SP2
  • Lamborghini Espada S3

Forza Horizon 5 launched to great praise and attention from the gaming public, as more than 3.5 million players flocked to Playground Games’ rendition of Mexico during its first 24 hours of general release. You know exactly what you’re getting with the Forza Horizon series, but this game clearly spoke to people, and it surely helped that it’s exceptionally good looking.

“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.”
