It's more than likely going to be open-world, and more on the arcade-like side of racing games, similar to GRID. If not open world, I'm thinking of courses similar to those of NFS: Hot Pursuit/The Run.

Since Forza 5 has been slated for a 2013 release, I couldn't imagine seeing two nearly identical Forza games being released in the near future. That just wouldn't make much sense...

Anyhow, I'm interested in seeing what kind of game Horizon pans out to be.

This was originally going to be titled "Forza World" indicating an open world setting. They changed it to the much better (IMHO) Forza Horizon.

They have already came out and said this is a totally different franchise and game then Forza Motorsport. Its also made by a totally different company then Turn 10.

Loved that game, but they kind of messed up with the sequel. That's why I'm hoping Horizon will be something special. I loved just driving around in the open-world, TDU had like over a thousand miles of road and no loading screens. You could drive for days, just drive. Bliss :)
