Back on 25th January, Turn 10 Studios’ Creative Director Chris Esaki posted a blog over on Forza.net which provided details related to this year’s upcoming Forza Motorsport release. In the post, there was a car list that included some of the 500 cars that were set to be included as base content at launch.
Last week, on 2nd March, the same Developer Direct blog post had added an Editor’s Note and the car list was changed. “We’ve updated this blog to remove mentions of some cars that will not be available in the base Forza Motorsport game. We’ll share more in the future when those vehicles will be coming to Forza Motorsport and how they can be obtained. We apologize for any confusion,” the note reads.
After cross checking the original list that was published on 25th January, it was found that six of the racing machines were removed from the list, assuming that from the Editor’s Note, they will not be available in the base edition of Forza Motorsports. Those cars include:
- 2018 Audi #44 R8 LMS GT3
- 2021 Cadillac #31 Whelen Racing DPi-V.R
- 2019 Ginetta #6 Team LNT Ginetta G60-LT-P1
- 2017 Oreca #38 Jackie Chan DC Racing Oreca 07
- 1983 Porsche #11 John Fitzpatrick Racing 956
- 2019 Porsche #70 Porsche Motorsport 935
Now, this does not mean that these cars are not going to be in the game. The way it reads is that they will be coming but will not just be included as base content. That could take one of many approaches, such as paid DLC, premium add-on content like previous Forza titles have done. AKA, spend more money.
It could also be like the current model in Forza Horizon 5, where new cars arrive monthly but they are unlocked through challenges and completing certain tasks. We don’t truly know what it could be at this time, but those six racecars were specifically removed and that’s worth noting.
As such, we’ve updated our own posts regarding the matter and we’ll keep our eyes peeled for further information. A couple of those cars were even featured in the promotional material two months ago, which makes it even stranger. Whichever way, keep it pinned.
