"I'd take another Forza Horizon over a new Project Gotham, personally."

No way. Horizon is fun for what it is, and Forza 4 is a great sim but a very poor (offline) racer. PGR was the pinnacle of online and offline racing games on Xbox, only maybe Grid came close (and we're getting a new one of those too, yay!). Bring it on.

I bought my first Xbox to play PGR and loved it. This is going to be one to watch IMO.

PGR4 is simply STILL the best racing game on xbox, becasue they got the basics spot on, rorza is great, but the cars themselves are to sterile.

the car audio alone on pgr blows forza out of the water, i still go back to it now and then to blast a few of the cars around, just because they sound so damn epic.

oh and whats that? night time racing? rain? snow? surface water?.... yeeeeah T10, yeeeah......

Whilst I like PGR, think 4 was a beast of a game, especially in the weather effects, sadly missed from all other racing games I've played - I don't think it'll happen. MS will undoubtedly have Forza 5 on the go as well and them announcing two pretty similar racing games seems a bit of a stretch.
It's all in the game...

I have to say that online racing with PGR was amazing! This is a great piece of news. PGR was the reason I got an xbox also. I can't wait.

I only played the PGR that launched with the 360 and can't remember for the life of me if i liked it or not :|

Anyone who was put off by the Horizon demo though i urge you to try it if you like non-track style racing, i hated the demo but picked the game up cheap(ish) and am really enjoying it despite the OTT/in yer face presentation.

I am less excited by this news however as i swear i just spotted something about a new Flatout game (that won't be called Flatout) being constructed...

Gears 4, and Halo 5 as launch titles? Yea... not gonna happen. Black Tusk if I recall is working on "the next Halo" game. That could be a new IP we get at launch.

PGR 3 wasn't great from memory, 4 was getting back to the old days with 2 being the best. Generally I think they are the best racing games though.

I've been tempted by Horizon, may get it whence cheap.

Probably, but if any information about them was leaked no one would notice as they wouldn't get recognised.

Horizon is a great game, definitely on of my favourite racers. A new PGR would be awesome, with top quality graphics, sound, physics etc
