Forza Horizon 3 Windows 10 demo coming 'sometime after' full game is released

Microsoft has said it will release a Windows 10 PC demo of its upcoming open-world racing game Forza Horizon 3 "sometime after" the full version of the game is released on Sept. 27.

A demo of the game for the Xbox One console was released earlier today, but it looks like PC owners will have to wait a bit longer, according to an updated blog post on the official Forza Motorsport site.

We know fans are curious about the state of a Windows 10 PC demo for Forza Horizon 3. A standalone "Forza Horizon 3" PC demo will be released sometime after launch. We invite all players who are eager to play Forza on PC to try "Forza Motorsport 6: Apex", available now in the Windows 10 Store for free. The Windows 10 version of "Forza Horizon 3" has been built in lockstep with our learnings from "Forza Motorsport 6: Apex", which just released out of Beta last week and added wheel support. We're dedicated to bringing the quality and innovation our fans expect from Forza to the PC, and we're confident players will have a fantastic experience with "Forza Horizon 3" at launch.

Again, the full version of Forza Horizon 3 will be released on September 27, and Forza Horizon 3 Ultimate Edition owners will be able to get it earlier on September 23. It will be an Xbox Play Anywhere game, meaning it will allow people who purchase the Xbox One digital version to get the Windows 10 version for free, and vice versa.
