As is expected of an extensive, high-level reboot of Xbox's fan-favorite racing franchise, Forza Motorsport (2023) is shaping up to be one of the best Xbox games coming out this year for car-lovers and fans of skillful simulated driving. Folks that want an arcade-style experience in an open world setting will prefer Forza Horizon 5, but if you're looking to embark on thrilling closed-circuit races while getting behind the wheel of the fastest cars in the world, Forza Motorsport is for you.
One of the biggest reasons why Forza Motorsport has proven to be so popular in the past is that it offers players tons of fictional and immaculately recreated tracks from real life to race on. The upcoming reboot is no different, and ahead of its scheduled release on Oct. 10, developer Turn 10 Studios has revealed every circuit that will be in the game at launch, as well as a handful of the ones coming in post-launch updates.
Everything you need to know about these tracks can be found below, including a full initial track list, a list of every track we know is coming in the future, and official details about Forza Motorsport's DLC track release schedule. Note that all of these circuits have been completely rebuilt from the ground up for top-tier visuals and accuracy, and will feature a dynamic time-of-day cycle, weather systems, and tracks that "rubber in" and adjust to temperature changes as they're driven on.

After Forza Motorsport goes live and some time passes, we're sure to learn more about other new tracks coming in the future, too. Make sure to check back frequently for all the latest information, as we'll be updating this article right away whenever new details are given.

Forza Motorsport (2023): DLC track release schedule
In terms of when players can expect new DLC tracks to come out in the future, Turn 10 has assured players in an official blog post that they'll be coming "on a regular basis." However, while Forza Motorsport will be getting consistent updates every month, these won't always include new circuits to race on "due to the extensive development timeline required to accurately rebuild these detailed environments to work with our new physics systems."
Ultimately, it's safe to say that there will likely be a fresh track to enjoy every 1-3 months or so, with larger and more complicated ones likely taking longer to develop and release. If the developers end up changing their plans, though, we'll make sure this section reflects the latest details.
Keep track of your favorite tracks!
The Forza Motorsport reboot is starting out strong with a suite of 20 varied and unique circuits to test your driving skills on, but as we race towards the future, that number is going to grow significantly.
