According to many sources, the next-generation Xbox console should launch in 2020. In preparation for this, it a lot of developers like Rockstar Games are already looking for game developers to work on these experiences, but it seems like Microsoft's first-party studios are also preparing for this. Recently, a listing{.nofollow} was spotted on Turn 10 Studios' website — the makers of the Forza Motorsport franchise — asking for a game developer to "deliver the next generation of Forza Motorsport titles."

The complete listing reads as follows. It's unclear if this simply refers to the next game on Xbox One, which they perceive to be a generational leap, or work on another console. The applicant should be familiar with programming on Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.

Microsoft's Turn 10 Studios, creator of the highly-acclaimed Forza Motorsport franchise, is looking for an experienced C++ game developer to help deliver the next generation of Forza Motorsport titles. If hired, you will be on a multi-discipline feature-team, working directly with designers, producers, testers, and other developers to deliver high quality features to our customers. We are looking for someone that has well-rounded experience in different areas of game development.

What do you want out of a next-generation Forza Motorsport game? Let us know. It's unclear if another Forza Motorsport title will launch this year because Turn 10 has committed to improving Forza Motorsport 7 in the past. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more.

  • It better have VR support, really sad to see it not supporting at least Windows' Mixed Reality headsets on the PC side already.
  • I agree. My unwillingness to get an Xbox One X at launch was 100% based on the lack of VR support. The reason I don't have a WMR device right now is the lack of Xbox support that they promised, then pulled back (classic Microsoft). The only reason I want Forza Motorsport these days is for VR, as the Motorsport franchise is way too stagnant (by the very nature of circuit racers).
  • hnnnn... MS didn't promise a VR support on X. It will be there if tech (ARM, no cable, light weight, longer battery, etc) allows it. I too would love to drive around Hot Wheels tracks in FH3 wearing a VR headsets, but... your neck structure is the limitation when you sit, your room becomes the limitation when you stand, you can't really make anything other than arcade-style-rail-shooter (racer is also a type of on-rail game) with current-gen VR. application is very limited.
    Current-gen VR belongs to amusement parks, not our living room.
  • VR would be amazing in a Forza game. Loved it in Project Cars. Would also like to see mixed surface and rally stages.
  • Bring some new vehicle style into the mix. I want to race truck cabs, or motorbikes. Currently it just feels like the Forza games are just becoming a visual polish more than anything else. It'd be nice to get something actually new for a change. I understand the whole, if it ain't broke, don't fix it, and what Forza does do it does extremely well, but it'd be nice if they took a chance now and then, like they did with Horizon.
  • They need to bring back the original infected/tag game like they had in Forza Motorsport 4. Best game they ever made. I would spend more money on dlc cars if you brought back infected on circuit tracks rather than the stupid airstrip that you guys thought everyone would rather have. C'mon turn 10.
