Forza Horizon 4 was one of my most anticipated games of 2019 before it was even announced. When the game showed up in the Xbox E3 Press Conference I became even more excited. Even for a Forza game, Horizon 4 looks seriously impressive. One of the things I mentioned in my E3 predictions article was that a new Forza Horizon game would have motorbikes. When some bikes turned up in the trailer, I really thought I had nailed it. According to John Knowles, Design Director at Turn 10 Studios, they will not be playable though –
No, you can’t drive motorcycles, just to get that out of the way. It’s a showcase event. It’s a motocross stunt team you’re racing against just like you’ve raced against jets, planes, boats, and trains
We know some portion of our audience has wanted to see playable motorcycles. Maybe someday but not this game.
If you missed it, or are unsure about the bit I’m talking about, you can check out the trailer below –
