According to Jeff Grubb of Giant Bomb, the Forza Motorsport release date is expected to occur in the second half of 2023.
On the most recent GameMess Decides podcast edition, Grubb provided the information. In a conversation with GamesBeat’s Mike Minotti, Grubb provided specific details regarding the release date for the racing game.
After hearing it for the first time earlier today, Grubb says, “I feel fairly good about this after asking around a few times. “It appears that Forza will launch later in the year, likely not in the first half.
After hearing about 2023, I don’t believe it’s all that unexpected. Still, I’m curious as to why they wouldn’t announce it now rather than risk further suffering down the road.
Forza Motorsport aims to bring back the highly detailed and realistic racing sim series long eclipsed by its more obnoxious and arcade-style cousin, Forza Horizon. The game was recently demonstrated at Microsoft’s Xbox & Bethesda Developer Direct broadcast.
The 45-minute broadcast’s 45-second portion of the game concentrated on the visual and audio fidelity of the next title and the inclusion of new elements like dynamic weather and time of day, which can alter the racing experience on each track. On the other hand, Forza Motorsport has a release date set as 2023, unlike many other games that were demonstrated.
Along with important games like Redfall and Minecraft Legends, the Xbox & Bethesda Developer Direct also covered the unexpected release of Tango Gameworks’ Hi-Fi Rush.
The industry insider posted a recent update on those discussing Grubb’s allegations, saying he believes the real release is still erratic.
I think the actual release is still fluctuating. But don't be surprised if it ends up missing the first half. https://t.co/LPa0z68zIh
