Updated April 15, 2019: Forza Street is coming to Android and iOS soon. This information was revealed on Facebook by the official Forza channel.
A few months ago, Microsoft released a game called Miami Street for PC. It wasn't meant for high-end systems, but could be played on less powerful devices like tablets. Today, it seems like the title has left early branding, embracing a new identity, "Forza Street." According to the team, Forza Street is a "race-on-the-go" experience, confirming prior leaks back in March.
In Forza Street, you enter the street racing scene to win the car collection of your dreams. Pick an event, set your lineup, and race for infamy. Race to collect legendary cars – from classic muscle to modern supercars – turning your garage into a trophy case. The developer also says that Forza Street features streamlined controls which focus on timing. Lastly, unlike the lengthy races found in Forza Horizon 4, you can squeeze in a quick one-minute race.
First leaked back in March, Forza Street was initial framed as a mobile racing experience for iOS and Android devices too, extending Microsoft's racing franchise beyond Xbox and PC. It's unclear if these versions are still on the horizon, following the recent rebrand.
Hopefully Forza Street is a polished experience which will keep players coming back for more. We'll have to wait a few days to find out what gamers truly think about this entry to the Forza franchise.
Are you interested in Forza Street? Let us know. It's a free-to-play experience so there's no risk in trying it.

My new laptop is coming in a few days, if anyone has tried it, let me know how it is.
It should also come to Nintendo Switch, and be a launch title for Xbox Live integration on other platforms. I am relatively concerned about the possibility of this game being a micro transaction laden hell hole.
I hope it's an actual game, with a start and an end, I'm getting really sick of movie games that don't progress like normal games, especially those that have time limits on progression. I just want a normal game on my phone, I don't even care if I have to pay money.
It's pretty terrible for pc, maybe more fun on mobile
As usualy Microsoft releases a game and doesn't have it listed on mixer for its own streamers to promote and stream the game. This as usual is a failure of a communications in Microsoft. It shouldn't be the job of streamers to go add games to the list on player.me it should be staff that curate a list on mixer or take the list of games from xbox or windows store to add the games to mixer.
So its not Forza 7. Controls are mouse, touch or spacebar. No steering just acceleration. Not what I was expecting. But, its actually OK and if you take it at face value it can be pretty enjoyable. Also means you can move from PC to mobile pretty easily.
A game that you can play for a few minutes at a time and easily pick up where you left off.
Looks like it's region locked. Garbage
This is just a play off Forza. The controls are really bad when you compare them to Forza on Xbox or PC. No one would actually PAY for this. Something just to fool around with when you have a few spare minutes. Not a good effort. Needs lots of work.
