In a recent developer update, the install sizes on each platform were confirmed:
Xbox Series X|S: 103 GB
Xbox One: 116 GB
Windows: 103 GB
Steam: 103 GB
The statement explains why the Series X|S has a smaller file size than the older Xbox One console, reading: “With the high-speed internal SSD storage found on Xbox Series X|S consoles, we’ve reduced the install footprint of Forza Horizon 5 on those systems by optimizing our assets for higher bandwidth streaming. That means a shorter download combined with super-fast loading times.”

Those planning to buy a physical copy of the Mexico-set racing game can still preload the game. “Those buying Forza Horizon 5 on disc may also preload the game today using the Xbox app on smartphones,” reads the statement. “Simply find Forza Horizon 5 in the Store and hit “Download to Console” to get started.”
Players will be able to tweak the graphics almost as much as they can customise the hundreds of in-game cars, and the game will also support 21:9 ultra-widescreen, so you can take in all of the sights of Mexico as you drive.
People still unsure of whether or not to pick up Forza Horizon 5 can watch this 12 minutes of gameplay footage to try and make their minds up.
