Playground Games’ Forza Horizon 5 has been out since last November, and it’s up to Turn 10 Studios to compete with a new title of Forza Motorsport, which is likely to be numbered 8. Even if Microsoft announced the continuation of the popular series as early as July 2020, and it was widely assumed that the game would arrive first, Forza Horizon 5 eventually over took it. Now we are mostly looking forward to the next piece of information.

At the moment, we have to get a taste of the official news, but some leaked screenshots of Forza Motorsport 8 have appeared on the Internet. According to speculation, the new racing game should already be in beta and selected influencers are trying it out. Screenshots from the game appeared on Reddit and the forum moderators confirmed their authenticity. And importantly, they have come from the Xbox One version, so there is talk again that the new Forza Motorsport will be a cross-gen title. Specifically, these pictures are said to be from last summer.

Even if there are some fans pleased with the Xbox One version, others are worried about a possible downgrade, as some critics have said after announcing that rival Polyphony Digital’s title Gran Turismo 7 will head to the PS4 in addition to the PS5. It was also originally thought to be a purely next-gen title.

The player who released the pictures also claimed that he had tried about three tracks and five cars on the Xbox One. The test was supposed to focus on multiplayer, in which some well-known YouTubers allegedly appeared. But other fans say that some elements of the new part have been tested by the authors since 2019, and therefore it was supposed to be an Xbox One version. Later, the team was able to use the older hardware due to the lack of new consoles. According to these players, however, the final game could only appear on the new Xbox and PC.

We don’t have to doubt the closed test of the new Forza twice, it was officially talked about last spring. Windows Central journalist Jez Corden claims that testing has been going on since then, and he estimates it could come out next year. The new Forza Motorsport is expected to appear at a joint Microsoft-Bethesda event in June 2022.
