No need to fret if you weren’t selected for this round. Turn 10 stated it will be expanding that number “as development progresses.” For those who have not signed up to the Forza Motorsport panel yet, that can be done here.
“Our development approach this time around is unlike anything we’ve done before,” said Forza creative director Chris Esaki in Wednesday’s video post. “Especially when it comes to developing the game with you, our players, and our community.”
When Forza Motorsport 8 was announced last summer, it was described as a “reimagining” of the series.
“Our new approach to development is really allowing us to get some of our details right,” continued Esaki. “Just to ensure that you, your friends and the communities you are building and are a part of will really enjoy and thrive in this world of Forza Motorsport.“
There is still no word on an official release date for Forza Motorsport 8. The racing sim is easily one of the most highly-anticipated next-gen releases. The last Forza title released back in 2017. Now that playtests are underway, a 2021 launch shouldn’t be ruled out.
