I'm no m$ hater but I'm calling bs. After the s**t storm that was forza horizon and the fact every game in their store is run as an app in window mode(no exclusive use of your gpu) they would have to scrap the whole thing and start again and I cant see that happening.
What was wrong with Horizon (I'm assuming you're talking about Horizon 3)?
They released a major patch for it some months ago that massively helped with its performance and low draw distance. Had a certain tendency to crash too.

Before the patch the performance was overall quite bad, very demanding, certain areas would not run smoothly even when setting everything to low. Since the patch released its a very smooth experience and the game runs about 33% better.

I am now able to increase the MSAA setting from 2X all the way to 8X and still get a smooth 60 fps in it. Sadly I still had a few crashes (like once every few hours or so at bad times) but its overall stable.
A new patch came out in may now the games runs at 4k almost maxed out 60FPS on my i5 2500k gtx 1070. I did get a refund back when it came out it ran like ****. just got it on sale and now it is smooth sailing

My last rig was of a very similar configuration. your i52500k will become the stuff of legend, best CPU I ever purchased, same could be said regarding the E8500 of previous generation, loved that CPU also.

To be honest through it's your 1070 that's doing the heavy lifting.

I know, it already is a legend had it for around 6 years now it has seen 4 GPU upgrades in that time
