Turn 10 Studios' creative director, Dan Greenawalt, has announced that the second open-world installment in the Forza Motorsport franchise will be coming to the Xbox One on September 30 of this year.

Boasting the ability to build your very own club of up to 1,000 other gamers, Forza Horizon 2 is looking to focus on the social aspect, perhaps anticipating the challenge of titles like DriveClub and The Crew. According to Turn 10, FH2 will offer over 200 cars, although as we've seen in previous Forza titles, that figure will grow considerably once DLC has been considered.

Turn 10 also released the best look at FH2 we've seen yet, focusing heavily on the new weather system as well as the new locale – the roads and highways of Europe. Take a look below for the official E3 trailer for Forza Horizon 2, and mark September 30 on your calendar. ‚Äč

      Forza, now simulating DLC in a european setting for a little variety in selling you things you already paid for.

      Any word on whether this is Xbone-only? Or will it exist for the 360 as well?

        According to IGM: "To clarify, Playground Games is developing solely for the Xbox One version, using Forza Motorsport 5's graphics engine as a baseline. The Xbox 360 version is being handled separately by Sumo Digital, using Forza Horizon 1's graphics engine as a baseline."

      Hopefully the DLC will actually contain a healthy number of all-new cars rather than reduxes from preceding games.

        Well it's going to come with over 200 cars to start.

          Many, if not most of which will likely be carryovers from preceding games. Fine. FM5's contemporary vehicle roster is still fairly current, and Turn 10 needs to start somewhere. What I took issue with in the first Horizon was a persistent failure to introduce new-to-the-franchise content beyond rally mode. Instead, I often got to pay for cars that were standard or offered as DLC 1-2 games ago.
