Following the news that Forza Horizon 4 will be delisted from digital platforms, Xbox has surprised its users by giving away the game for its Game Pass subscribers.

It is official. Forza Horizon 4 will no longer be available on the Microsoft Store or Steam as of 15 December, 2024 due to an issue with licensing and agreements. As a result, the game and any additional content will no longer be available to purchase through any online stores.

Additionally, as of 25 June, all of Forza Horizon 4’s DLCs will be delisted meaning that only its Standard, Deluxe, and Ultimate versions will be available for purchase until December.

However, as perhaps an apology to players, Forza Horizon 4 codes are being sent through Xbox messages for Xbox Game Pass subscribers and those who have purchased add-on content.

According to the official blog post, “"If you played Forza Horizon 4 through Xbox Game Pass and purchased DLC content for it, worry not: by having an active, full-paid (not discounted) Xbox Game Pass subscription on 6/25 you will be eligible to receive a game token if you have purchased any extra content for Forza Horizon 4 through your Xbox Message Center.

Codes will start to be delivered in the following days, please bear in mind that it might take a while before you get your token."

The message received through Xbox messages reads: “As a token of appreciation for your purchase of add-on content, here is a code for the digital Standard edition to continue enjoying the game!”

Although players will not be able to purchase Forza Horizon 4 by this time next year, this code will give them the chance to keep the game forever. Pretty cool, huh?
