Forza Motorsport has been out for over a couple of weeks now, which means developer Turn 10 Studios is now fully focused on post-launch support for the racing sim. The game’s first major update launched earlier this month, which was followed by a hotfix, and now Turn 10 has offered more details on its next major update.
Turn 10 has confirmed that Update 2 for Forza Motorsport will be coming sometime in mid-November. It’s set to be the first content update for the game, and as previously confirmed, will be adding the Yas Marina track. In addition to that, the update will also bring with it over 200 fixes for issues that have been reported by players so far, including for performance and stability, crashes, other platform-specific issues, and more. You can view a preview of the update’s patch notes below.
