Forza Motorsport (202X) is an upcoming motorsport-focused racing game and is the 8th entry in Forza's Motorsport series.
It was first shown during Microsoft's Xbox Games Showcase livestream on July 23, 2020 with an announcement trailer but without a release date. With the game being in "early development," it was revealed to be releasing for the Xbox Series X console and for the Windows 10 operating system.
The announcement trailer showcased multiple racing teams, with each having their own example of an Apollo Intensa Emozione, participating at an Techsports Racing sponsored event at Laguna Seca Raceway.
It also follows teams preparing for another event at Laguna Seca Raceway involving the BAC Mono, as well as crew members tending to a Mazda #70 SpeedSource Lola B12/80, and hinting at towards increasing involvement of race engineers.
As a technical showcase, the trailer outlines that the game will include ray tracing for improved reflection detail alongside audio, render in a 4K resolution (3840 x 2160), and run at a 60hz refresh rate (60 frames-per-second).
