The Upcoming Forza Motorsport Game to Adopt a Live-Service Model, Promising Years of Updates

Microsoft has confirmed that the upcoming Forza Motorsport game will be built around a live-service model, ensuring continuous updates and new content for players for years to come. This approach is not new to the gaming industry, as Forza Horizon 5 already embraced a live-service model with regular DLC packs and event content.

While the specifics of how Turn 10 Studios plans to implement the live-service model into Forza Motorsport are not yet clear, the studio sees it as an evolution of the gaming experience. Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox, explained in an interview with IGN that the new Forza Motorsport aims to offer a completely different approach to tracks, cars, and overall game support.

This shift towards a live-service model is also marked by the decision to drop the numerical titles, indicating a new beginning for the series. Instead of releasing Forza Motorsport 2, this upcoming game will continue to be the main focus of the series for the next few years. Spencer emphasized the importance of ongoing support for players who invest in the game.

Forza Motorsport's adoption of a live-service model poses an interesting challenge, considering the game's more focused and realistic racing experience compared to the accessible nature of the Horizon series. However, the intention is to provide a long-lasting and evolving game for players.

The highly anticipated Forza Motorsport is set to release on October 10th for PC, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox Game Pass, offering a new era in the beloved racing franchise.
