Talking Point: Are You Looking Forward To The New Forza Motorsport This Year?

Over the last couple of days, our racing game focus has been squarely on Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown with Nacon finally unveiling official gameplay, but don't forget there is another huge Xbox racer in the pipeline! Forza Motorsport makes its grand return on Xbox Series X|S later this year, and we want to gauge how excited the PX community is about this one roughly three months out from launch.

At the moment, any hype surrounding the new Forza title feels weirdly restrained. It'll have been six whole years since we last saw a track-based Forza by the time the new one launches, and to be honest, we just expected to see a wee bit more excitement about it this close to launch.

Of course, there's a rather large spaceship-shaped blockbuster coming sooner than Forza in the form of Starfield, and Bethesda's new RPG seems to be scooping up any Xbox-flavoured air right now like a giant otherworldly vacuum. We'll expect the focus to shift more towards Turn 10's racer shortly after Starfield's September 6th launch, but still, you'd think the first FM game in a long, long time would still be getting decent attention from Xbox fans.

We did get treated to a deeper look at the title recently as well. The team showcased a lengthy gameplay demo right after this summer's Xbox Games Showcase, and while we'd still like to see more raw, uncut gameplay, we definitely know the direction Turn 10 is taking with Forza at this point.

So, how are you feeling about the new Forza Motorsport as things stand? Do you want to see more gameplay too, or maybe even a playable demo to see how the physics have changed since Forza 7? We know it's been a busy year with lots of news on Starfield and the ongoing Activision Blizzard deal, but, should we be showing Forza some more love?
