Forza Motorsport 7 is reaching End of Life status and will be removed from the Microsoft Store and Xbox Game Pass on September 15, developer Turn 10 has announced.
As per the game’s official website, players who already own the game will still be able to play and access the title as normal. Online features such as multiplayer will also still be accessible. Anyone who’s bought DLC for the game while it’s been on Xbox Game Pass will be eligible for a token to keep the main game and continue playing. They’ll receive a token through the Xbox Message Centre by August 2 and anyone who hasn’t by that time who is eligible should contact Xbox Support. Said tokens will be valid until September 15, 2023.
Forza Motorsport 7 is actually the most recent game in the base Motorsport series. It launched back in 2017 with a controversial loot box system, which was removed just under a year later following fan outcry. A new Forza Motorsport game, currently without a number in the title, is in development at Turn 10 studios. However, it has remained relatively quiet since it was inviting players to test it back in April.
Instead, later this year we’ll be getting the latest entry in Playground Games’ spin-off series Forza Horizon 5, which takes the Horizon Festival to Mexico. That’s set to launch on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC on November 9.
🚗 If you own the game, keep driving after End of Life in September
