What you need to know

  • Forza holds a monthly livestream to talk about new seasonal events, updates, and more.
  • This month, Forza is cancelling their live stream due to the recent coronavirus outbreak.
  • The virus is now in Seattle, and Forza wanted to protect their planned guest stars.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) is showing little intent to slow down, and companies far and wide are responding in kind by cancelling or postponing events. The Forza Monthly livestream is the latest to succumb, and will not be taking place this month. Forza cited concerns with the safety of guest stars that planned to appear on the show travelling to Seattle, where the coronavirus has been wreaking havoc. While live streams and online-only events have typically continued like normal, in this situation its understandable that Forza is wanting to approach this carefully.

The news comes after other Seattle-based companies like Microsoft have already made moves to protect their employees from the virus. Bungie, the developer of popular games like Destiny 2, has also done the same thing. It's clear that companies are taking zero risks when it comes to the safety of their employees, especially since two Microsoft employees were recently diagnosed with the coronavirus.

It's still too early to tell if next month's Forza Monthly stream will take place, but for now we'll just have to be a little more patient for our Forza news. Safety comes first.
