For the past several months, we here at Turn 10 have been talking to you, the Forza Faithful, about our mysterious Next Big Thing. Today, we toss aside those hushed mentions and sidelong glances, and officially unveil the identity of our next project: Forza Motorsport 4! The ground-breaking Forza Motorsport series will return to Xbox 360 in fall 2011, featuring support for Kinect as well as the classic controls you’ve come to expect from the Forza series.
For your first peek at the game, you need look no further than our announce trailer which aired Saturday, Dec. 11 during the 2010 VGA Awards on SPIKE (check out the trailer here). Those who saw the show know that our announcement included an incredible stunt performed by Top Gear USA’s own Tanner Foust—if you missed it, you can check out the video here on the site on Monday. You can also take a look at our first four screens from Forza Motorsport 4 in the Forza 4 VGA Gallery.
Now that Forza 4 is officially heading towards its fall finish line, we’ve only just begun talking about the game. We can’t wait to share all the juicy details of what we’re cooking up for all of you and, over the coming months, we’ll be bringing you regular Forza 4 updates here at forzamotorsport.net including the latest news, in-depth feature details, developer podcasts, and, of course, lots of eye candy in the form of videos and screenshots. This is the biggest Forza Motorsport yet, after all, and we’ll have plenty to talk about.
In the meantime, feel free to hop into the vibrant Forza community and get your feet wet. If you’re new here, welcome! I’m Brian Ekberg and I’m the community manager here at Turn 10. Along with the community team of Fred and Javier, I’m here to make sure you’re up-to-date with all the latest news, and comfortable in our little slice of racing game heaven here on the Web.
