JULY
The biggest month of 2020 for Forza news, July marked the Xbox Games Showcase where we announced an evolution of the Forza Motorsport franchise - Forza Motorsport. We can’t wait to share more details!

There will be plenty happening in 2021, but we couldn’t let this year end without looking back on the positives of 2020. It was a difficult year in many ways for so many of us – yet the creativity, competitive spirit, and sense of connection within the Forza community have kept us going all year long.

Thank you to all of our community for your support through 2020, and we wish you and your loved ones a happy, healthy, and fun 2021. See you on the road!

I heard about it too, sources say 'Releasing Fall 2021' that's in September. Who cares, they will maybe be able to refine all the cars now!
Why do so many classic cars have SO MUCH chrome on them? Forza let us dechrome cars!!

If you know of a source please name it and preferably post a link so the community can see it themselves - as long as it's not speculation or a baseless rumor.

Discussion thread


Quote:
DEVELOPER CONVERSATION
We spoke with Andrew Sage from Playground Games (Forza Horizon 4) and Dan Tunnell from Turn 10 Studios (Forza Motorsport) for some insights into how the improvements have affected their studios.

Is the studio currently using Visual Studio 2019?
“We just moved the whole studio to Visual Studio 2019 in the last week of January 2021. We’ve had one of our development branches running it since before the holidays but it just reached broad adoption a couple of days ago.” – Dan

What were some immediate benefits that you saw from faster link times?
“The biggest benefit I see is improved iteration time. Even if we only shave 30 seconds off link time, multiplying that by the number of devs in the studio and the number of times they compile each day becomes a large number really quick.” – Dan

What are some potential long-term benefits?
“One of the longer-term benefits is reduced build times on our server farm. If someone checks in code that breaks the build, the faster we catch it the less downtime we experience. It also gives us faster tooling iteration since the time between a developer checking in new tooling code and the build system checking in new tools binaries is reduced. Additionally, there’s reduced time for “validation” builds. Prior to checking in, each developer builds a representative sample of the game binaries to ensure that they haven’t broken anything. This slows iteration (I’m sure you can see a pattern emerging – iteration time is king) and anything we can do to speed that up is extremely valuable.” – Dan

How might the link time improvements change the workflow patterns of the studio?
“If I were to guess, I’d say that we’ll see less build breaks. Validation builds take a significant amount of time to complete. Even though they’re required, sometimes developers will omit that step if they’re in a hurry and feel confident that their fix is trivial enough to be safe. The faster the build times are the lower that barrier to entry is and the more likely people will perform that step even for changes they consider to be trivial and/or safe. I also think we might see less code changes between compilations. The longer compilation and linking takes the more code a developer will add before they hit the button to compile. If compilation and linking is almost instantaneous, most developers will use that as a quick sanity check to verify that the method/function/class/etc. that they just added compiles before moving on.” – Dan

I don't think we're going to get anything for FM8 any time soon.

April 2021 - Forza Monthly news



Watch the replay at YouTube/Turn10Studios: https://youtu.be/zfHldD8qVL0?t=851

Turn 10 Creative Director Chris Esaki was on the April 2021 Forza Monthly livestream to provide a five minute update on the development of Forza Motorsport. He started by mentioning the challenging environment of game development over the last year during pandemic lockdown and the team's dedicated work, and mentioned the game concept of building communities within and around the game and using feedback to shape it.

Progress points:
- Xbox has been running weekly internal playtesting for data
- The team has "completely overhauled our physics"
- "Huge strides" in the Forza Race Regulations system
- feedback on race strategy, car balancing, and public lobbies

The major highlight was a new phase in the game's development:
"The new news is that today we will soon be able to share to our people in our Forza Panel [ForzaFeedback Program] that they will actually be able to get their hands on a part of our new Forza Motorsport game. The only way to get your hands on this part of the new Forza Motorsport title is to be a part of that panel. We're going to continue to plan this type of testing as we go in the months ahead, and get more and more people from the community in and enjoy this experience."

"We're looking forward to learning all we can from you, our players and community, to help us really make this the game you've been waiting for. If you haven't signed up for the panel you can sign up at the link. Keep your eye out for all the Forza Motorsport channels to get any future updates on how to get more involved. I can't wait to begin this new process. Thank you all for waiting patiently, it's going to be a great time for us."

(This is the same program that was announced two years ago during the June 2019 E3 Forza Monthly livestream.)


There was no gameplay and no timeline mentioned. The official FAQ continues to read "Q: When will Forza Motorsport be released? A: Currently in early development, Forza Motorsport will run at 4K, 60fps with scenes connected and dynamic. We can’t wait to share more details."

Forza junkie since FM2. Horizons are the break I need from the track.

FH4 and I have a volatile love/hate relationship 😑

That's great! Glad to hear something from it. Sounds like it's going to be a massive overhaul
