Forza Vista trademarked

There's no word on Project Gotham Racing: Millennium Edition yet.

http://www.vg247.com/2013/05/20/forzavista-trademark-appears-ahead-of-xbox-720-reveal/

Siliconera unearthed the trademark filing this morning which pertains to, “a feature of interactive video game software which allows players to obtain statistical information of internal and external features of a vehicle and to virtually navigate and operate those vehicles.”

So it sounds like a new feature in an upcoming Forza title, similar to the Kinect showroom functionality in Forza Motorsport 4.

Forza Vista could be a Kinect exclusive section of Forza 5.

Whew. Just another feature, it seems, and not a new spinoff game. Could have Kinect/Illumiroom demo tomorrow? Must be because of the timing of the filing, so as to not give away too much too soon.

Considering Turn 10 said that there would be a new Forza game every year from now on. I don't know why people have been acting like there might not be one :/

It would need to be Forza Motorsport: Vista

Forza Vista seems like an Autovista rebrand, but not sure it requires trademarking.

new name for autovista. Why ?
Maybe it's going to be in other games besides Motorsport, maybe it's a standalone kinect tech demo we're seeing in..uh...26 hours :D

Ehh kinda don't like it. Ok with it though.

Would be interesting to see them just tie in their franchises with the name of the console.

Kinda like how Nintendo does with every franchise (Mario Kart 64, Mario Kart Wii)

I'm not too sure how much of an impact the brand recognition of Vista would have on a Microsoft game. Can be negative, especially for those who had to experience Windows Vista.

It'll be a showroom feature, where you can buy cars right from your living room. Along with a hot Pizza Hut Crazy Cheesy Crust Pizza.

Joke response:
Forza Vista? I'll stick with Forza XP and then upgrade to Forza 7.

Serious response:
As some others in here have said, this is probably a sequel to Forza Horizon. Think about it. Horizon <-> Vista. Similar, huh.
