Despite both players being on the same platform for the game, they are not able to join the leader’s session in Forza Horizon 5. Some are getting disconnected during the process. If this is happening to you, try the following things:

  • Make sure both players have the latest version of that game and have all the recent updates. A version mismatch could potentially cause this issue. Manually update the game if necessary,
  • Check the Forza Horizon 5 server status. If there are connection problems related to the servers, they will contribute to the issues with joining a convoy and others’ sessions.

  • Close the game, relaunch it and try again.
