More surprisingly, it's also coming to the Xbox 360.While it was previously believed that the sequel to 2012's open-world driving game would be set in America's Deep South thanks to some leaked artwork, it appears that Forza Horizon 2 will instead be heading closer to home with Southern Europe acting as the backdrop.Playground Games, a team formed of Codemasters veterans based in Leamington Spa, will again be taking on development duties, working closely alongside mainline Forza developer Turn 10.Forza Horizon 2 will be featuring a weather system, as well as the Drivatars - a way of populating a game with AI's built around the characteristics and driving styles of your friends - from Forza Motorsport 5. There will be 'hundreds' of cars, but leading the way on Forza Horizon 2's boxart is the Lamborghini Huracán.The original Forza Horizon was one of our games of 2012, and arguably one of the last generations' very finest racing experiences.
