A source of Videogaming247 has informed them that Microsoft is looking to release Forza 3 this Christmas.
While nothing is confirmed, and Microsoft has yet to even comment on the game’s existance, it seems really likely that they will be aiming to have a new exclusive out this December to strengthen their line-up.
If the leaked information from last June is anything to go by, we may be looking at a 2 DVD set that will include roughly 400 cars and around 100 tracks, and please, oh please, just add cockpit view as well.
One thing I will say though, is that if Forza 3 is indeed on it’s way, they had better have something really special to put on show.
With games like GT5, GRID and a few other already showing off how good a racing game can look, Forza 3 will really need to beef up it’s visuals in order to do the kind of impressing that Microsoft needs right now.
Forza 2 was quite honestly a horrendous looking game when compared to rival racing titles, and while we all know that graphics aren’t everything, Microsoft and Turn 10 needs to at least match their competition if they want gamers to continue taking their console seriously.
I hope that the leaks from last year were true as well, because while Forza 2 wasn’t that bad in the car department, the game seriously, and I mean seriously lacked tracks. This was only made worse when DLC came offering more tracks at prices that were higher than most people wanted to pay, especially since the game shipped with so few.
Let’s hope that we do actually see a Forza 3 this Christmas, and even more so, let’s hope that it’s something really special, because we all know that GT5 is drawing closer and closer, and at the moment, Microsoft has absolutely nothing announced that comes even close.
