Is Forza Motorsport Coming to the PC?


Well, it’s time to fire up the rumor mill, guys! Microsoft’s Game Developer’s Conference is here, and we have some interesting rumors to come from it. Last year, we had a teaser for DirectX 12, which featured Forza Motorsport 5 running on a PC. Now, we’re getting rumors that this year, we could have Forza Motorsport 6 announced for the PC!

While this is by no means confirmed, there are some hints that can imply at a release coming for the PC. Firstly, Turn 10 stated that it took a relatively short amount of time porting Forza to the PC (around four months with a four-person team). Secondly, it is confirmed that Chris Tector, Software Architect for Turn 10 (and speaker in the above video) will be headlining a “Developing Games for Windows 10” segment.

Third, and possibly most telling, is that this would fall in line with the Forza Motorsport 6 announcement. Microsoft was pretty quiet about game details, so we may see a major bombshell coming from GDC, in the form of a Windows 10 announcement!

Forza Motorsport 6 could be a perfect title to help kick off Windows 10 and DirectX 12’s gaming prowess, and help boost PC racing in general. Microsoft has stated they want to increase cross-compatibility between Xbox and PC. Cross-Buying will also be available, where you will be able to play on PC and Xbox One. This could be a great way to show off Forza Motorsport, but time will tell.
