Racing fans might want to take note – Microsoft is starting off 2015 with a massive vroom with the announcement of a new chapter for the Forza Motorsport franchise, sixth in succession for Xbox One. Developed by Turn 10 Studios, the announcement was made during North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Ford is partnering with Microsoft for this game in conjunction with the launch of their new Ford GT which will serve as the cover car in the game.
“It is an honor to share this historic moment with Ford and celebrate the legacy of the GT by making it the featured cover car of ‘Forza Motorsport 6,’” said Phil Spencer, head of Xbox. “We’re thrilled to have the unique opportunity to announce Forza Motorsport 6 the day the car debuts – on one of the biggest stages in the automotive industry – and we can’t wait to share more details on the game later this year.”
Other than the famous GT, other high performance Ford vehicles will make their appearance in-game appearance- the Shelby GT350 Mustang and F-150 Raptor which were also debuted in the motor show. This means Forza fans will be first in the gaming world to drive these new Ford powerhouses.
“Just as Ford has pushed the boundaries of car technology in GT, Forza Motorsport 6 will embrace that spirit of innovation as our most technically advanced racing simulation to date, offering a fun and realistic automotive experience for both car lovers and gamers,” added Dan Greenawalt, creative director at Turn 10 Studios.
Microsoft has stated that 2015 will be the “busiest and biggest” for the Forza franchise. We have to wait until June to see what they are talking about.
