Latest ‘Forza Motorsport’ racing game due in 2023

Forza Motorsport is returning in 2023 for its eighth instalment, giving Xbox racing fans the chance to virtually drive more than 500 cars.

The latest instalment of Turn 10 Studios and Microsoft’s Forza Motorsport racing game is due to launch later this year, ending a six-year wait for fans of the series.

Exclusive to Xbox consoles and Windows computers, Forza Motorsport is the eighth iteration of the racing video game series which debuted in 2005 and spawned seven titles until the launch of Forza Motorsport 7 in 2017.

In a video posted to YouTube, Turn 10 Studios – the game’s developers – and Microsoft provided an update on Forza Motorsport’s progress, with its launch now delayed from  the North American summer of 2023 (June to August) to an unspecified time later this year.

According to the developers, more than 500 cars will be available in the game from its launch date – about 200 less than Forza Motorsport 7 which was released with approximately 700 cars, later expanding to include another 130 as downloadable content.

The number of tracks has also been reduced, dropping from 33 circuits to 20. Australia’s famous Mount Panorama Circuit in Bathurst has featured in every Forza Motorsport game since the fifth title in 2013, but it has not been confirmed for the latest instalment.

Under the skin, Turn 10 Studios claims its new game has more advanced physics simulation than its predecessors, while the computer modelling of cars, tracks and the surrounding environment will also show significant improvements.

Forza Motorsport is the first game in the franchise to be optimised for the latest-generation Xbox Series X and Series S consoles, but gamers who play on the older Xbox One will still be able to play it through Xbox Game Pass service.

Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios are expected to announce more details about Forza Motorsport closer to the game’s release later this year.
