Forza Motorsport 8 Release Date Still A Mystery To Fans

Forza Motorsport 8

The line of Forza games from Turn 10 Studios has become one of the most beloved racing series of this decade. The first Forza title came in 2005, with new releases being launched every two years. Fans are now eagerly awaiting news of the release date of Forza Motorsport 8, which if the company followed its previous pattern, should be hitting store shelves this year. However, there is still no word on when we can actually expect the game to be announced. In fact, Piunika Web reports that Turn 10 has said the game will not be coming any time soon.

Forza History

Racing fans have come to love the Forza series because of its great graphics and beautifully detailed vehicles. The initial Forza Motorsport game came in 2005. With Forza Motorsport 2 launching just 2 years later in 2007. Following the second release date, Forza titles kept coming through 2017. Every two years, like clockwork, Turn 10 would launch the next installment in the series. However, Forza Motorsport 8 has not followed that same pattern.

Forza Horizon is another family of racing games from Turn 10 and Microsoft. However, it focuses on an open world racing environment, rather than track matches. The 4th installment of Forza Horizon was launched last year, with expanded scenery focusing on the UK. Microsoft has also been pushing Forza Street this year, which is a free to play game available on Android, iOS, and PC platforms. In spite of these developments there has been no word on the possible release date for Forza Motorsport 8, leaving fans wondering when Turn 10 will give them what they really want.


Forza Motorsport 8 may be one title gamers are waiting on this year. However, one of the games biggest competitors is launching a new version this year. Need For Speed has not scored a major hit in the racing world since 2012. Although the game was once one of the most popular titles on Playstation, it has lost some popularity over the last few years. EA Games announced that the new Need For Speed game will be available later this year. If they developers have managed to bring their A game to the table, we could see more players picking up this game. In the meantime, we will keep watching for news on the release date for Forza Motorsport 8 and keep you updated as we have more information.
