New Forza Motorsport Announced For Xbox Series X, But It Won't Be Ready For A While

The next Forza Motorsport title has been announced and shown off ahead of the Xbox Series X launch.


Microsoft announced a new Forza Motorsport game during its July Xbox Series X event. Developed by Turn 10 Studios, the new entry in Microsoft's flagship racing series ditches the numbered naming convention in favor of simply being called Forza Motorsport.

Forza Motorsport will take full advantage of the Xbox Series X hardware, offering 4K resolution at 60 frames per second and ray tracing to give racers the most realistic visuals yet. No release window has been set, and Microsoft has noted that Forza Motorsport is "early in development." This means that the game will not be available at launch for the Xbox Series X.

The new Forza Motorsport is a ground-up reimagining of the series, designed for the new hardware. You can check out the first teaser trailer below.

Forza Motorsport will launch on Xbox Series X and PC, but there's no mention of Xbox One here. Since Microsoft has said that the Series X will not get console exclusives for the first two years, this means the game could be a while away yet. It also means that this is perhaps one of our best looks at what the Series X can do, as the game is not being designed to run across multiple generations.

When it launches, Forza Motorsport will also be available on Xbox Game Pass for subscribers on day one.

This will be the first Forza Motorsport in three years, following 2017's Forza Motorsport 7. In fact, there was no Forza game released at all in 2019--the first year without a new Forza since 2010.
