The difference in power is undoubtedly big between the newest Microsoft console the Xbox One and its predecessor the Xbox 360 , which is why “Playground Games” announced that Forza Horizon 2 on Xbox 360 will work on a different engine and would be a “different game”.
Playground Games’ studio creative director “Ralph Fulton” confirmed that the 360 edition will run on the previous Forza Horizon’s tech.
“It’s based in the same world, it’s based on the same themes. Rather than thinking of them as the same game on different platforms, they are different games inspired by the same ideas.”
“There are things we are doing in Forza Horizon 2 on Xbox One that honestly couldn’t be done on any other console”
Forza Horizon 2 is out on September 20 for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
