Forza Motorsport has always been the staple of Microsoft’s racing portfolio, however the roles has somewhat shifted as the seventh release was released all the way back in 2017 (nearly 6 years ago!) and the mantle has been taken by Forza Horizon instead – which has since produced two more titles in this period. FM7 in particular wasn’t well received in particular due to prevalence of loot-box systems, which was all the rage in many titles at the time.

The studio behind Forza Motorsport series, Turn 10 Studios, decided to go back to the drawing board and remake the next title from the ground up. Hence, there’s no number 8 in the title, as they set the title as a series reboot to start things over with brand new features and physics engine (which is a bigger leap than what FM7 jumped from FM4, according to the developers).

The game was originally set for spring 2023 launch – but we’re soon entering summer season so that’s not happening. That timeframe has since “shifted” to just year 2023, but insider MrMattyPlays has cleared up the information regarding specific launch dates. “I’ve heard that Forza Motorsport (is) coming out in October,” he said in the Defining Duke podcast. Should the game launch at that time, it’d mark a massive 6-year gap since the previous Motorsport title was launched.

If the information turned out to be true, we should hear about the game from Microsoft themselves very soon – including Xbox Game Showcase set on 11 June. The launch date should be revealed by then, along with few extra details prior to the game’s launch.

Pokdepinion: I’d like to see if the new Motorsport title might convince me to try circuit racing, as I’m more of a Horizon player myself.
