Forza Horizon 5 cross platform racing in the desert

Is Forza Horizon 5 cross platform?

There’s nothing better than feeling the wind in your hair (if you still have some), the speed at your fingertips and finding yourself behind the wheel of a great expensive racing car. Ok, but it’s even better to be racing with friends, so let’s ask the question: is Forza Horizon 5 cross platform?

Many gamers have been wondering if they are able to play with their friends on other consoles, it’s definitely not fun to go at it alone, right? Of course there is also the single player mode, but there is more fun to be had when racing together with friends.

So, once and for all, let’s address the question and let’s find out all about Forza Horizon 5 as cross platform.

Does Forza Horizon 5 support cross play?

There’s definitely good news here. So, Forza Horizon 5 does support cross play in its Xbox and PC versions. Players on both platforms should have no problem playing the game between themselves.

Now for a little bit of bad news, Forza Horizon 5 unfortunately does not support cross play on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation consoles. But there is a simple reason for that: the game was not converted on other platforms. Perhaps it will be available in the future, even though we would be most doubtful.

The reason for that, well, is that Forza was published by Microsoft. The company is clearly not very interested in expanding their audience beyond the platforms that they own, so their Microsoft Game Pass service which supports only Xbox and PC, of course.

But we think most players of the racing game should definitely be satisfied with this answer. If you’re looking for more information on the game, be sure to check out our other guides such as how to sell cars in Forza Horizon 5 and all about engine swaps.
