The latest Forza Horizon 4 update completely breaks the game on Xbox Series X / S consoles, as reported by gamers. So that players are even prevented from running Forza Horizon 4. The developer said they will release the fix today.
A comment on the Xbox Series X Reddit page advises players on the problem. It says, “Don’t update Forza Horizon 4.” It is written as “There is a new update round about 7 GB. It breaks the game..”. And continued: “The game won’t start anymore on series consoles. Not just me the whole Forza subreddit has the problem. My whole xbox black screened and shut off when I first tried to open it.”. Responses to the post from many different Series X / S owners stated that they also experienced this problem. And finally yesterday, the official Forza Support Twitter account posted a message confirming there was a problem.
The team is currently working on a fix and hoping to have an update by tomorrow. We thank you for your patience. https://t.co/SvLUEI8gX5

They said: “We’re aware of a crash impacting Series X and Series S players in the latest ForzaHorizon4 update. We’re working on a fix and will update when we have an ETA.”. They also said players that there is a solution, but warned that their progress could be deleted. They said: “The current workaround is to take your console offline, launch the game, then re-enable online via the Xbox Series X/S dashboard.”. And they added: “Do not” attempt these steps if you’ve already deleted your local save. This will cause you to lose your progress and start the game from scratch.”.
