This year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo will certainly not be lacking in the burnt rubber and realistic racing departments, now that Microsoft and Turn 10 have combined to reveal the existence of Forza Motorsport 6. Indeed, today’s announcement has likely already created large lines at the gigantic industry showcase, even though it’s still over one hundred and fifty days away.
In-depth details are scarce at this point in time, but we do know that the high profile Xbox One exclusive will appear in some form at the aforementioned event. Furthermore, it’s also been confirmed that the game will feature Ford’s all-new GT as its cover car. However, unlike the last game’s choice of red, this year’s featured chassis appears in blue on the already-available artwork.
“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,” said Dan Greenawalt, creative director at Turn 10 Studios. “We’re excited to unveil gameplay at E3 in June.”
All of this was strategically planned to coincide with the Forza franchise’s tenth anniversary. It’s a major milestone that Microsoft isn’t afraid to gloat about, and it seems as if the publisher may have something up its sleeve in terms of planned celebrations.
Stay tuned for more information on Forza Motorsport 6 as it develops, and if you’ve yet to do so, make sure to check out Forza Horizon 2 in the meantime. To say that it’s one of the best racing games out there would almost be an understatement.
