The Forza Horizon 2 delisted day is arriving as the game will be removed from the Xbox Store on September 30, 2018. This follows a similar removal setup that the first entry in the Horizon spin-off series faced. Prior to being removed the game was given for free as a Games with Gold with heavy DLC sales prior to its removal. The reason behind the removal is that the licensing for the cars, music and branding in the game is expiring on the noted date. This will make the publisher unable to sell the title as they're not interested in renewing these aspects, this will cause the core game and any DLC to come down on that date.
It can still be played if it was previously owned and disc copies will still work going forward. It is worth noting that two DLC packs provide extra Achievements and Gamerscore to the title, "Storm Island" and "Porsche Expansion" for those that hunt the extra points. It's sad that the game is being taken down considering these Horizon releases are always stellar for their locations. It is also the only Horizon entry not to be Xbox One X Enhanced and now that tweak seems unlikely. Whatever the case, it's well worth checking out prior to the game's removal.
