Forza Horizon 3 is Being Removed from Digital Storefronts in September
Forza Horizon 3 is officially going to be removed from the Microsoft Store in late September, but it's on sale now for 70% off until its removal date.
In what has become almost commonplace for some games nowadays, Playground Games has announced that Forza Horizon 3 will no longer be for sale in a little over a month.
Detailed over on the official Forza Twitter account, the third entry in the Horizon series has now reached its “End of Life” phase, which means Microsoft and Playground Games will soon be removing it from digital storefronts. The reason for this is likely because of licensing deals that were made in association with the game. Once those licensing deals for various cars, music tracks, etc. that appear within FH3 reach the end of their contract periods, Microsoft can then legally not sell the game any longer. That said, those who already own it will still be able to download and play the game in perpetuity.

Ahead of Forza Horizon 3’s delisting date, which is set to be September 27, the game has also now been drastically marked down. Over on the Microsoft Store, the Ultimate Edition of the game can currently be picked up for only $20.99, which is 70% off of its typical retail price. So if you don’t have FH3 already, you might want to grab it at some point over the next month so that you can retain access to it.
Conversely, if you happen to own Forza Horizon 3 physically, you’ll still be able to readily play it as well. Furthermore, the online services associated with the game will remain up and running, too.
