Turn 10 Studios didn’t churn out a new Forza Motorsport title this year, which is fine given the support for Forza Horizon 4. However, the developer is hard at work on the next iteration. In the recent Forza Monthly stream, creative director Chris Esaki talked about holding the first “studio-wide playtest” for this “new experience.”

He then talked about a bunch of different features like a new tire model, suspension model and pressure system but noted that, “In reality, [these features] don’t really matter in the larger scheme of things. The overall product, and where we’re going with it, is so vastly different and an amazing experience”.

It was revealed that, “We have a new way that heat interacts with the tire pressure and we actually have dynamic track temperatures affecting this all. We have dynamic rubbering in on the track. We have a new atmospheric pressure system that accurately has pressure affecting things like air density, affecting aerodynamics and power, as well as the tire pressure. We have an entire new suspension system with new suspension modelling.” He then noted that this was only the “moment-to-moment, rubber meets the road, experience” and that he was probably missing out on “about 15 other things.”

However, Esaki did noted that the studio would have more information next year. Whether the title is called Forza Motorsport 8 or something else wasn’t mentioned. Will it arrive for Xbox One and Project Scarlett or remain exclusive to the latter which is out in Holiday 2020? Honestly, we’re hoping to hear more sooner than latter.

In the meantime, there’s still plenty going on with Forza Horizon 4. It will receive the series’ first battle royale mode “Eliminator” today for free. Essentially 72 players compete in races in the map, earning upgrades for their vehicles until eventually the final 10 battle for glory.
