While fans of the current lineup of titles from Playground Games are eccentric about the progression for the Forza Horizon series, those are only able to access the first couple of entries by already owning a copy or purchasing a physical copy. As for online, both 2012’s Forza Horizon and 2014’s Forza Horizon 2, both games were unfortunately delisted from the Microsoft Store previously.

In that, the studio told that due to the expired timeframe for the licensed music of both projects, the game’s will no longer be listed on the storefront following the respected expiration date. And alike its predecessors, the same can now also be said for 2016’s Forza Horizon 3 unfortunately.

In a new post on Twitter, the firm shared that the game will be capsizing on the Microsoft Store later this coming September.

Howbeit, for fans to get their hands on the title before it is gone from the platform’s retailer, Forza Horizon 3 will be on sale until the departure date arrives. The Standard Edition for the game now has an updated price of $9.49 whilst the Ultimate Edition now sits on a $20.99 price tag. The latter bundle includes three content packs with the base game: Forza Horizon 3 Motorsport All-Star Pack, Forza Horizon 3 VIP Pack, and Forza Horizon 3 Car Pass.

As for the remaining DLC add-ons for Forza Horizon 3, both Blizzard Mountain and the collaborative Hot Wheels expansions are still regularly priced. But, the Forza Horizon 3 Expansion Pass is only running for $10.49 which includes the aforementioned DLCs and a various selection of car packs as well.

In midst of the upsetting announcement, Playground Games did disclose that despite the game’s removal from the Microsoft Store, Forza Horizon 3 will still offer its online interactivity including matchmaking and freeroam implementations.

Earlier last month, developer Playground Games went ahead to properly announce its next project, Fable. The game is posed to be a reboot of the Lionhead Studios’ franchise with it being listed for Xbox series X and PC. You can read the full announcement by heading here.
