The Xbox Game Studios title Forza Horizon 5 was one of the titles that won, taking the title of “Most Anticipated Game Overall” at today’s E3 awards. Editors of IGN, GameSpot, and other industry media partners were on the panel of judges to select the award.
Greg Miller, Jacki Jing, and Alex Mendez presented The E3 Awards Show. With E3 2021 ending, fans all over social media have shown their support for titles across all categories. But, with E3 being officially over, the Summer of Gaming event is starting later this week. On Thursday (June 17), Microsoft will be hosting its own gaming showcase. The company has already confirmed that the Xbox Games Showcase: Extended will be featuring a lot more titles.
Wrapping Up E3 With Forza Horizon 5
The announcement of the game has generated tons of excitement. The franchise has been silent for a while before this announcement(2018 to be exact). And because of this return from hiatus, excitement, and support for the upcoming game has come in masses.
Buzz around the new Forza Horizon game has already begun. Many are concerned about the game being bloated with busy work and tedious side missions. However, many were quick to point out that Forza is unique compared to other open-world titles because it’s a racing game that has a large emphasis on multiplayer activities. Those same people are saying that it’s one of the reasons Mexico was chosen as the setting, thanks in no small part to its diverse environment.
Other titles have won their own awards based on the studios they came from. Titles such as The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles (which won “Capcom Most Anticipated Game) and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy (which took the title of Square Enix Most Anticipated Game) have also started to raise their own trains of excitement across all platforms.
