Forza Motorsport 7 leaks ahead of E3 reveal, 4K on Project Scorpio

Microsoft is set to kick off its E3 2017 press conference later today, where the full reveal of the company's upcoming "Project Scorpio" console is set to occur. Advertised as a console pushing 4K gaming, several upcoming games are expected to utilize the additional resources offered by the system.

It now appears that one of Microsoft's unannounced titles, Forza Motorsport 7, has leaked ahead of its E3 2017 reveal via IndianNoob. The leak claims Turn 10's latest iteration of its racing franchise will run at 4K on Project Scorpio, which comes as no surprise following the Forza demo showcased for its hardware reveal. We now have access to four supposed (and extremely grainy) images of Forza Motorsport 7, which appear to have been taken from a reveal trailer.

Alongside the images, the leak also claims Forza Motorsport 7 will release on October 3, 2017. This is expected to be a similar launch window to the Project Scorpio console itself, despite few reliable leaks surrounding console announcements set for today's conference.

While we recommend being cautious of leaks, with only a few hours to go until the Microsoft's press conference, such a leak would come as little surprise. As always, stay tuned to Windows Central this afternoon for all major announcements from Microsoft's Xbox E3 2017 event.

  • Can't wait!
  • Hyperventilating right now. GOTY for me. Knew it would be. Happy it's real.
  • OH! WHAT A SURPRISE!!!  I'm shocked!!
  • I don't have money for a new console, hope it will work on hold XBOX ONE
  • Of course it will.
  • It will. All games will work on Scorpio, XB1, and XB1S. They'll just be extra awesome in 4K on Scorpio.
  • Microsoft already said Xbox One doesn't get left behind. Scorpio is going to be like Xbox Premium we guess at this point. Same games, extra awesome on the new box.
  • I love the Forza series
  • big into these games I'm very excited to hear more on them later
  • i see images from Gran Turismo and giggle, they put so much work into cars just to get outshined again by Forza. I use to be a fan of GT but Forza has become my favorite racing game of all.
  • Let's not forget, too. This will be the third Forza Motorsport on Xbox One, with two Horizon's in there too. Sony hasn't shipped a single GT game on PS4.
  • Thats my biggest issue with the GT series and Polyphony. Sony produce a new console and just like the PS3 you wait a long time for a GT game, same now with the PS4. We get told that they are perfectionists and want GT to be right yet they launched GT5 with a bunch of generic cockpits and lacked damage. Forza and the Turn 10 team have always been considered an important part of the XBOX line up and it shows. With Sony's anti-gamer. anti-consumer decision over Fanatec support they killed off me buying driving games for my PS4 Pro and while its currently my primary gaming machine that may well change with the Scorpio. Microsoft is starting to build momentum again so as long as they can get the price point right they can really gain a good chunk of ground back from Sony and with a unified ecosystem under the Windows 10 codebase they can really build on what the have.  
  • YEAAAHHHHH!!!!
