Yesterday, a leaked trailer showing off a new Forza title made its way around the Internet. Oddly the trailer wasn’t removed from YouTube which gave fans a reason to question its authenticity.

Today, a Microsoft France employee by the name of Sebull has confirmed that Forza: Horizon is indeed real, and will be released on the Xbox 360 Fall, 2012. The report from Analog Hype continues by saying Forza Motorsport 5 will be coming in 2013 [as stated by Sebull of Microsoft France and translated on NeoGaf].

Sebull has also elaborated on the differences between Forza Horizon and Forza Motorsport saying they’re “two different games”, and that development time will be split between two teams; Playground (Horizon) and Turn10 (Motorsport). Sebull continued by saying Forza Motorsport will remain on an “every-two-years release schedule” as it has since the beginning of the franchise.

Horizon is expected to be officially unveiled tomorrow during GDC 2012. Trailer below!
