(RUMOR) - Playground games working on follow up to Forza Horizon, going annual

Jon Knowles informed us (watch from 4:16) about Turn 10 and Playground Game’s annual strategy for Forza 9 months ago. Why so secretive now?

PlayGround games is developing a "next-gen Forza project," according to the LinkedIn profile of an artist at the studio.

Yibo Liu’s LinkedIn page disclosed that he was "Working as the only technical artist in the vehicle art team for an undisclosed next-gen Forza project." Liu, who lists his position as a technical artist at Playground, has since changed the listing to reference an "undisclosed Xbox One project."

Forza Motorsport 5 was the first game that Microsoft showed off when it revealed the Xbox One in late May. The racing simulation franchise received its first spinoff last year, Forza Horizon, which was developed by Playground Games. We’ve reached out to Microsoft for information on the alleged project and will update this article with more information as we receive it.

Update: A Microsoft spokesperson told Polygon that the company doesn’t "comment on job postings or any speculation."
