The next Forza Motorsport has been long anticipated by fans since the success of its predecessor Forza Horizon 4. Here is everything we know so far about the upcoming title.
As dedicated Forza fans will know, the franchise is released into two different titles, the first one being the Motorsport Collection which is more of closed track-experience featuring heaps of track races for players to sink their teeth into.
Alongside Motorsport, Playground Games develop the Horizon games which offer more of an open-world experience, while Turn 10 studios take charge on the Motorsport side.
The trailer for the upcoming title along with the actual in-game graphics are set to be the best of the best, but there is much more going on beneath the surface here is what we know so far.
Creative Director Chris Esaki stated in a recent interview posted to Forza’s Twitter, that a new closed test will take place. Players who are interested will be able to sign up to take part, they can do this by joining the Forza panel, this will give some lucky players the ability to play the game early.
“The new news is today we will soon be able to share to our people in our Forza panel, they will actually be able to get their hands on a part of our new Forza Motorsport game”.
Usually Forza titles are release around the end of September, as nothing is concrete at the moment could it be that we can expect a release around this time later this year?
We have seen in the past Forza trailers being revealed at E3 events, although it seems that that won’t be the case for the Motorsport title. Last year we saw the Forza trailer dropped on line as the annual E3 event was cancelled due to the ongoing global pandemic.
It has also been noted that the upcoming Forza Motorsport title will release on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S as well as PC. Sadly the title will not be making its way to Playstation.
Leaks have also suggested that the new title will be created on a completely new game engine, if this proved to be correct this could dramatically shake things up for the future of both Forza titles.
Idle Sloth leaked a series of details last year about the upcoming title on Twitter along with the hashtag grain of salt, especially as this leak states a release date of February 2021 which has passed.
Fans will have to hold on for a release date in the future, in the meantime be sure to check back with us at Gamerficial for the latest news and updates.
