“Co-founder Trevor Williams will transition from General Manager to Studio Head effective immediately, as the Playground Games team focuses on updates to Forza Horizon 5 and the development of Fable.”
The former studio director leaves his company on a high, after its latest release Forza Horizon 5 achieved the highest review score on Metacritic for a new game during 2021.
VGC’s Forza Horizon 5 review called the racer “the first essential game of the generation”.
“This is the best Forza Horizon has ever been,” our review reads. “Because of this, it’s among the best the racing genre has ever seen, and – as its predecessor accomplished before it – it’s easily one of the best games this generation has seen so far.”
