Why would they ever take games out of the store? Surely it's money for old …Why would they ever take games out of the store? Surely it's money for old rope..?



There is a lot of licensed content in the Forza games, from music to the actual car and brands. Once the license for the content expires, Microsoft can no longer sell it so its removed from their stores.

We don't know what their license agreements were, but you can take a wild guess and assume it's something along the lines of exclusive rights to use certain car designs, names, or brands in the game for a set amount of years. Luckily, at least for Microsoft, they seem to be able to take the license agreements forward into the newer Forza releases.

Of course, it's in the best interest for the owners of the cars, music or what ever is licensed to get those rights back after a certain amount of time just in case some other game comes along and they want to do a deal with them; Project cars, Assetto Corsa etc.

Forza Horizon 2 Car Pass - £4.00

Amazing cars, outstanding value! The Forza Horizon 2 Car Pass gets you access to six monthly pack add-ons (5 cars each) for the price of five! That’s one free pack, plus, Car Pass owners will receive an exclusive bonus car for free, the 2010 Noble M600. That’s 31 cars to collect, race, and customize in Forza Horizon 2!
The Forza Horizon 2 Complete Add-Ons Collection is currently £14.70 which is great value considering it is usually £73.49. You only have until 11am this morning before the deal expires so be quick!

Rumours Forza Horizon 2 will be disappearing from the store in the future like the first game did
Bought and gifted this yesterday. Been on sale £7.99 for a while. Just my luck. Heat for the deal.
Would I be right in thinking that the Storm Island DLC rarely goes on sale? Would now be a good time to grab it?

As above it has been on sale quite a number of times for £4 but the worry now is that it won't be available in the near future if the rumours are true. The Complete Add-Ons Collection (£14.70 until 11am) includes Storm Island and worth considering.

I'd only really be fussed about extra areas to race in, extra cars wouldn't interest me that much. Would the complete collection be worth it for me?

Probably best just going with Storm Island then if you are not fussed about having all the cars. Worth noting the Porsche Expansion for £7.99 and included in the Complete Collection features...

If only it wasn't a baby and bathwater situation though. I wish they could just replace the licenced cars etc. with generic backups rather than remove the entire game.

I would imagine there would be quite a few people that would not like that idea. Myself included.
I bought this a long time ago only to discover it only unlocks in-game once you do an unknown number of races/bucket list missions etc. Racing off road in the wet is fu-un once you get there though!

Stupid question. If they remove the game from store can you still play the game?
Is this worth getting if I have forza 3 ?

I can see his point - if they removed the licensed content for the game they would remove it for everyone, including people who have already paid for the game. This way people who have already got the game get to keep the full version, and people who haven't bought in in 4 years, including 1 month of GWG and mulitple sales don't get to play it. Seems fair.
Ordered both via the Turkish site. Cheers for the heads up. Heat added ;-)

Yes but there a few caveats. There no clear answer which way it will be removed until when/if its removed. - and I think I have this terminology the right way around

The game may be delisted, which means it will not appear in the Microsoft store on the Xbox and new purchases are not possible. However if you had purchased it before the delisting and need to re-download it (ie dead hard drive, new console etc) it will be accessible via your purchase history and you can reinstall it.

The alternative is the game is removed, in which case its really gone, Its not in the store, and even if you go via your purchase history it cannot be re downloaded.


As long as the game is on your local hard drive it can be played. Physical copies will also work fine as you would expect, but upgrades/patches may also be removed so no longer available, and that may cause other issues

Yeah or it will be a shell of the original game if they remove licenced vehicles and music. It's not like you couldnt find a copy of the game physically.

I'd say the price for a physical copy will go up once it's removed. Different strokes I guess but I'd prefer a shell over nowt. I'd play it more for the maps and general feel of the driving than any specific cars, music etc.

The game will be delisted like Forza Horizon 1 and Forza Motorsport 5. I added them to my account but never downloaded them before they got removed and was able to download them fine much later. Forza Horizon 1 was even updated after delisting to add Xbox One X support which is when I downloaded it for the first time.

As I said until it happens its hard to say. Another example is something like Alan Wake, was deleted, and it cant be downloaded now even if you had bought it in the past.
Bought then had a look at the free cars and there are loads - 20+ . Search Forza 2 horizon on the store . So game + 30 odd cars and blizzard for £8 as the rest free

You should still be able to see it in your library and download it even though its not on the store. Or push it to the download queue.

That's not true Alan Wake was delisted NOT deleted. In actual fact if you have a download code for Alan Wake you can still redeem it!

P.T. was deleted from the PlayStation store but I'm not aware of any paid for games on console that have been deleted rather than delisted.
'Get it now' vanishes when I visit The Forza Horizon 2 Complete Add-Ons Collection page? I have the base game and a few free cars so does anybody know why not available for me to buy? Am I better getting car pass and storm island as I was going for full pack for the added Porsche pack. Thanks

It's been delisted in the past couple of days. They'll slowly start removing more, so get what you can of what's free and anything else you may want.
Many thanks Buzz
