Forza Motorsport 7: All known issues and bugs on Xbox One and Windows PC

Forza Motorsport 7 is the latest entry in Microsoft's flagship racing series, bringing physical racing avatars into the franchise for the first time. 700 cars, dozens of tracks, and various other new features make this the best Motorsport game yet, and it's only going to get better when it goes 4K on the Xbox One X.

However, Forza 7 does suffer from a few issues in-game and out, with players reporting widespread download problems on PC. Posted on the official Forza forums, here's the full list of issues Turn 10 Studios is currently working to fix in future title updates for Forza 7.


  • All players on a given PC will be able to play the game but only players who purchased the DLC will be able to access the DLC.
  • Player's mouse pointer will stay in the forefront while actively racing
  • Race track and audio features may not load properly in a race if the player has tabbed out of the game in the pre-race lobby until the race starts.
  • Random Gamertags may appear in the host's lobby when backing out of Public or Private multiplayer sessions and not allow them to join a new hopper lobby.
  • Some players may be unable to create or join voice chat sessions. We suggest restarting your computer and trying again.
  • We are aware that the ['] key may be difficult to see in various menus.
  • Game may become unresponsive when a player is browsing Driver Info in a large public multiplayer lobby during the transition to the next track.

  • Players who exit Car Select during Launch Countdown without selecting a car will be left behind in the lobby with no car selected.

  • Players may experience graphics not rendering properly when racing. If you experience this, we recommend turning down your in-game video settings.
