Early in development? What were they doing for the last 3 years? That's it? That's all you have to show us?
Yeah, I really thought the Series X launch was going to have the 1-2 punch of Halo and Forza (haven't we been hearing about Forza 8 for like 2 years now?) I'm more a Horizon guy so it doesn't matter to me, but it would have been nice if this was further along.

"Early development" kills the launch release rumour, I guess.

Probably holiday 2021.


Shit. So they will work on it 4 years then. Looks like they are going for GT legacy i guess.. It really doesn't make sense why this is not launch title if true. They took extra year specially for it.

For the last decade they've been doing incremental upgrades so they could maintain a regular release schedule. It's clear whatever's cooking it's going to require a new engine and new assets and that takes time. Once it's done they can go back to their 2-year cycle.

so its just teaser not even a trailer... does that mean they not ready yet for next gen console line up ? but i believe in it . hope buying old cars and city cars will be a thing still. 700 plus cars must be in it.
but not even real trailer or real gameplay ... shame , it could kill GT7 but it didint for some unknown reason .
i remember they allways had proper trailers for previous forza games.

Only series X and pc interesting, now they have no excuse to not include dynamic tod and weather. It looked really good, the only game that i was impressed with. The lighting and reflections where insane.

Well they didn't show anything. Some garage shots no one will see in released game (like previous forza games) and some super short angled gameplay shot which shows nothing other than some pavement and dof cars.

I expected full blowout not teaser.

The game is in early stages of development? What? So no Forza in 2020, just a slight graphics bump for FH4?

It will be hilarious if GT7 comes out before the next FM game.

My worst kind of trailer. Just some meaningless close ups and to top it off the weight of the cars doesn't look very realistic. Doesn't help that the sounds are overblown / disconnected from the action.

yeah i really do wonder why they even bothered to release that trailer. They should keep it under wraps longer and start PR when game will be ready to launch next year.

If the game does definitely look like this then this is the best looking game I've ever seen. I absolutely love racing games which is why I have a full racing simulator and I'm very interested how this looks.

The trees are how trees are for the first time ever in a racing game.

The ray tracing reflections are excellent.

The colour pallette is perfect.

I'm more impressed with this than gran turismo.

Lol, thats not low quality, its distortion effect wich is actually even more advanced than standard sharp reflections in RT.


See like in here, the closer to the object the sharper the reflections get like in RL, and the reflection sharpness also depends on the surface and material. Not everything is super shiney remember that. Even DF said that it was harder to do reflections in this way than the standard sharp RT reflections like they analysed in Control.

Looked amazing, like every Forza. Also seems like a reboot as it there isnt a number associated with it.
