The anticipated release of Forza Horizon 5 is just around the corner. So close, that even Xbox today shared the respective trailer for the launch of the racing game that you can watch below.

While most won’t be able to play it until early next week, some specialized early access media outlets have already started to share their opinions.

Referring to one of them, Xbox boss Phil Spencer commented on Twitter that he agreed that “Mexico is an amazing scene” to the game, adding that “the xbox community in Mexico has always been amazing and it’s great to be able to have one of our franchises highlighting what an amazing place Mexico is.” It is worth remembering that estimates show Mexicans prefer the Xbox over the Playstation.

Responding to this comment appeared none other than Shuhei Yoshida, former president and now executive of PlayStation focused on independent developers, the famous “indies”, who said the following:

“Congratulations on the release, vor enjoy visiting Mexico in the game 😀“, reads the tweet of the Sony executive.

Forza Horizon 5 will be available from November 9th for both Xbox Series and Xbox One, as well as PC via Steam and the Microsoft Store. Likewise, from day one it will be on the Xbox Game Pass for consoles, PC and cloud.

It is always good to see this friendship between managers of “rival” companies, showing that we can all enjoy and play any game, regardless of the platform on which it is located.

What do you think? Do you like it when executives from different companies congratulate each other? Or would you rather not?
