Microsoft has unveiled Forza Motorsport, debuting the next iteration of its flagship racer at the Xbox Games Showcase on July 23. The unveiling provided our first glimpse into Turn 10's fresh reset on its racing series, among the early wave of in-house, first-party experiences headed to Xbox Series X.
The latest Forza Motorsport still remains "early in development" according to executive vice-president of Gaming at Microsoft and Xbox chief Phil Spencer, with the series seemingly taking a lengthy hiatus to focus on reworking the fundamentals. We previously saw Forza break away from its annualized released cycle, absent from 2019, with still no release date provided. The move followed strong long-term support supplied for both Forza Motorsport 7 and Forza Horizon 4, which Microsoft is expected to further embrace moving forward.
The trailer showcases native 4K resolution gameplay, running at 60 FPS on early Xbox Series X hardware, with ray-tracing support for advanced lighting and shadows. The title also appears to be skipping Xbox One, only confirmed for Xbox Series X and PC.
Microsoft is yet to provide firm details around availability for the new Forza Motorsport, but wording suggests a launch beyond the initial console debut.
