Welcome to the Daily Bulletin for August 19th! This article will sum up some of the news stories from today, and hopefully will help keep you up to date.
Forza Horizon 2 To Reach “End Of Life”
On the Forza Motorsport website it has been revealed that Forza Horizon 2 will reach “end of life” status on September 30th. What this means is that the game, and it’s DLC, will no longer be available to purchase. After September 30th, those of you who own the game will still be able to re-download and play the game, however there was no mention of whether or not the game’s servers would be coming down. The game is currently part of Games With Gold so if you haven’t played it it seems now is the perfect time to grab it.
