We’re less than a month away from the release of Forza Horizon 4. Xbox One and PC players can look forward to playing the highly-anticipated racing game when it eventually arrives on October 2, 2018. Those who bought the Ultimate edition of the game will be able to experience it even earlier on September 28, 2018. However, does Forza Horizon 4 PS4 exists? Will Playground Games ever release the game on the Sony console?
Forza Horizon 4 PS4: Is Forza Horizon 4 Coming to PS4?
Unfortunately for PS4 players, the answer to the question above is a resolute no. The Forza franchise, and by extension the Forza Horizon series, has always been exclusive to Microsoft. That means it will only be released either on the Xbox One or the PC. This is even more so after Microsoft revealed during E3 2018 that it has acquired several game developers, including Playground Games. Now that Microsoft literally owns the Forza Horizon 4 developer, it looks like the game will never appear on any platform other than the Xbox One and PC.
Historically speaking, Playground Games has only ever developed games for Microsoft and that includes the Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC. There would be no reason at all for the studio to port the game over the PS4. Even if it does have plans for Forza Horizon 4 PS4, the fact that Microsoft now owns the company means there’s no longer any chance of it happening ever. As long as Microsoft owns Playground Games, we will probably never see a Forza game on a Sony console, Nintendo console or any other company’s platform for that matter.
Forza Horizon 4 PS4: Alternative PS4 Racing Games
Even if you can’t play Forza Horizon 4 on the PS4, there are many other racing games on the console that’s worth checking out. Recommended games include Gran Turismo Sport, which has always been seen as a sort of rival to the Forza franchise, as well as Driveclub. Both are PS4 exclusives, and therefore not available on other platforms.
