Forza Motorsport 8 Updates: Following the popularity of Horizon 4 and the introduction of Horizon 5 at E3 2021, the next Forza Motorsport 8 game appears to be a strong contender. We have all of the most up-to-date information about Forza Motorsport, including the release date, cars, and tracks.
Regular fans of the popular racing game will already be aware that the franchise divides its new titles into two categories, with the Motorsport collection focusing on track races and Horizon providing a more ‘sandbox’ open-world experience.
Turn 10 Studios leads the effort on the Motorsport front, while Playground Games develops the Horizon games. The game isn’t called ‘Forza Motorsport 8’ as many thought, but it is billed as a reboot. Along with Forza Horizon 5 news and leaks, we’ve received lots of details about the forthcoming Motorsport game.
If there’s one thing we already know for sure, it’s that the trailers and in-game graphics will be top-notch, but there’s a lot more to look forward to.
A PLOT Forza Motorsport 8
While no release date has been given, we do know which platforms the game will be available on.
Forza Motorsport will be available on Xbox One, Xbox 360, Xbox One S, and PC, however unlike previous Forza titles, it will not be accessible on PlayStation.
According to one of the most widely circulated leaks, Forza Motorsport will be built on a whole new gaming engine, Unreal Engine 5. If the reports from XboxMag.Net (in French) are true, it might have a significant impact on future Motorsport and Horizon titles.
Off-road racing is said to be a big benefit of this new game engine in the next Motorsport game. IdleSoth also disclosed a raft of additional features that they planned to include in 2020. However, this should be taken with a grain of salt, as the leak specifies a release date of ‘February 2021,’ which has already gone.
