Early access to Forza Motorsport 6 begins today for Forza 6 Ultimate Edition owners!

I wanted to make people aware of an issue with launching Ultimate Edition today. Players who purchased the Ultimate Edition before 8/31 but have not since updated their Xbox One, have disabled auto-updates, or have not gone online since pre-ordering, may still have just the Forza Motorsport 6 "stub file" (essentially a placeholder) on their Xbox consoles, and not the full pre-downloaded version of the game. For those players, launching the stub file will cause the game to return to the dashboard without prompting the player to download a CU for the full game. Affected players can simply delete this stub file and re-download the game from "My Games & Apps" but will need to download the full game before being able to play it.

An easy way to find out whether you have the full game or the stub file is to look at the image associate with the game. Examples:

FULL GAME IMAGE:
Full Game Image


STUB FILE IMAGE:
Stub File Image

While we expect this problem to only affect a minimum number of players, I wanted to make sure that those affected know that we were aware of the problem.

Thanks and enjoy early access to FM6!

Brian

I did too. Now I'm reinstalling and it's sitting at 1%.

Another strange thing...all of my DLC for Forza 6 shows the Forza 5 icon in the bottom corner. If I try to launch Forza 6 from one of the DLCs it starts Forza 5.

Hey! I'm at 2% now....

Thanks for the update, a bit late though :(
But I saw the full game image and not the stub file image, and still had the same problem.

hope mine will be installed before the live show. (atm 4%)

Same situation here, but with my internet speeds I'll be lucky to have it down again before the 15th.
Disappointing.

I paid for this?????
How is it posible you made and update at the time you are supposed to be playing???? You have many days before to do that.
Before 15:01 CET it says that is too early to play the game and at 1500 it starts to make an update!!! And it's taken more than usual. It's on 3% and it has 40 minutes downloading??
What time I'm supposed to be playing??? Tomorrow??? Who is going to refund me for this issue??? Because I paid more to play it early.!!!

Same here😔 . The add ons all displayed the forza 5 logo when installed. When I try to select forza 6 it acts like it's going to load and then it just kicks me back to the Xbox one home screen

Yep, I fell victim to this too. I could have swore that my Xbox was set to auto-update. I'm installing the update now, and will go back to downloading the game. My plans for today have been completely changed now...

i had the fullgame image. but it kicks me out, what i am worried about is that my game size was 45 Gb. i checked it yesterday. when it unlocked i saw my xbox saying it is ready to play. kicks me out, i check the size end now it suddenly is about 250 MB. where is the rest of the 45 GB gone to?

How could I be redownloading yet when I go to manage it says manage 45gb. If it wasn't installed it wouldn't be taking up HD space. And on top of that my internet isnt suffering at all. When Xbox downloads updates and games I get a big slow down on my internet with other devices but I'm not having any issue with speed right now.
