Two screenshots of what appears to be a map from Forza Horizon 5 have surfaced online. If legit, this leak confirms Japan as the setting of the next Forza game.

Rumours about the next Forza Horizon game surfaced a couple of months ago when reliable industry insider and GamesBeat journalist Jeff Grubb said he expects another Forza Horizon game before the already announced Forza Motorsport. 

Of course, many fans were surprised to hear this since Microsoft already confirmed they are working on a Motorsport title but not a Horizon one. It seems a bit odd to announce the games in that order but it's Microsoft's decision and we are not really complaining.

Anyway, Grubb also hinted that he knows where the game is set and many fans assume it's Japan that we will be visiting in Forza very soon. And judging by the latest screenshots, which appeared on Reddit, the game is indeed set in Japan, Tokyo. Check out the screenshots below:

As you can see, the leaks reportedly reveal the full map of Forza Horizon 5 but before you get all excited, we really have to say that these screenshots don't really look legit and are probably fake so take them with a huge grain of salt. However, it's also entirely possible that these are real. It would not be the first time that Microsoft's games leak before the announcement. 

All in all, we like the idea of drifting down MT Fuji, it's certainly something that many fans would absolutely love. Japan has been a much-requested setting by the community and we really hope Playground Games will
