It is about time that Microsoft released Forza Moto 8. The acclaimed Forza series is sure to return in 2020 with the arrival of Xbox Series X. Details related to the much anticipated next entry in this franchise have slowly started to pop-up.
Earlier, Microsoft released Forza games in alternating cycles. An odd-numbered year meant the launch of a game from Motorsport series, while the even-numbered year denoted the launch of the Forza Horizon series of the game.
Both the series were published by Microsoft and had the same branding but were quite different in many ways. Turn 10 studio was behind the Forza Motorsport games, which focused on circuit-based racing. The Forza Horizon titles were more casual with street-racing elements and were developed by Playground Games.
However, recently we saw this cycle of game releases to come to an end. The upcoming Forza Motorsport game would be released after a wait of two years.
With the release of Xbox One X, we received Forza Motorsport 7, and it pushed the console to its limits and offered some amazing eye candy. 4K gaming on Xbox One X was great, but now the upcoming Series X consoles are offering 8K gaming or 4K gaming at 120 FPS, making the experience even better. Forza Motorsport 7 looked almost photorealistic. Just imagine the possibilities with Forza Motorsport 8.
It is still unclear what the upcoming game will offer in terms of graphical or gameplay advancements. Even its name is not known. Nevertheless, we can say that we will see hundreds of photorealistic cars and some beautifully designed tracks to race around. The gameplay advancements would probably focus on a more simulation like gameplay.
The studio has confirmed that they are working on a project. There are some rumors that the game will also feature tire pressure. Rumors also suggest that different tires and different roads will have an impact on the performance of the vehicle.
As for the release of this new title, there is no announcement regarding its release date, but going with the fact that the new Xbox will go on sale in the holiday season 2020, the game would be released during that period.
