Thanks to new leaked images, it looks like Turn 10 Studios’ title Forza Motorsport could be coming to Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S and PC.
Forza has been a popular franchise among racing fans for years, but Forza Motorsport hasn’t had a release since 2017 despite its usual biennial release frame. The game first launched in 2005 and is a direct competitor to the Gran Turismo series. The game was only released on Xbox consoles. The main focus of the game is on providing lifelike racing mechanics, with the aim of helping players understand how vehicles handle and how best to upgrade them. In 2012, Turn 10 cooperated with Playground Games and Forza Horizon was born. This new game offers a more open-world sense of freedom and attracts different fans to the title. Since then, Forza Motorsport and Forza Horizon traded off the release of the game every year, until 2017 when Forza Motorsport 7 came out and no new Motorsport was released. In 2020, Turn 10 Studios announced they were in the early stages of production for the new Forza Motorsport and mentioned that it would not be called Forza Motorsport 8.
As reported by Dual Shockers, a Reddit user named Zorpalweapon, says that the latest Motorsport title will be available on Xbox One rather than just for Xbox Series X/S, as was previously believed. The moderators of the subreddit confirmed that the source is legitimate and that the screenshot Zorpalweapon posted is in fact from the Xbox One version of the game. Another Reddit user commented that the game’s official listing only has it available for Xbox Series X/S and PC, but also mentioned that the team may not have an Xbox One listed at the moment.
The images posted by Reddit users may come from the game’s demos. The Forza Motorsport experience starts in 2021, and players seem to have the option to try it out on Xbox One. Playback is only available for Xbox Series X, but other select players can play on Xbox One. There were a lot of comments doubting the legitimacy of the image, despite the confirmation of the moderators, and one user even pointed out that all testers were forbidden to reveal, so the images This should have never leaked.
Regardless of whether this leak is true or not, players are still excited about the return of the Motorsport series. Fans have been anticipating the news for quite some time now and hope to hear more about what to expect from the new season of Forza Motorsport. Hopefully there will be another announcement in the coming months so fans can get back to enjoying the racing simulation game soon.
