Microsoft’s 2015 Xbox One and PC racing game Forza Motorsport 6 and all of its DLC will be removed from digital storefronts on September 15, the company has announced. In a blog post, developer Turn 10 Studios announced that the racing game will enter its “End of Life” status on that day.
The game and its car packs and expansions will no longer be available to buy digitally after that date. Those who already bought the game and/or any of its DLC can continue to play it. Additionally, users can delete it from their hard drive and re-install at any point after the de-listing.
Forza 6 recently became free on Xbox One through Games With Gold, so now is a good time to pick up the racing game before it’s no longer available. On top of that, all of the game’s DLC has been put into one mega-bundle that you can buy for $5 USD.
Forza Motorsport 7 followed in 2017, but the franchise’s every-two-years release schedule that has been in place since the series debuted in 2005 appears to be ending as there is no new Forza Motorsport game announced for 2019. Xbox boss Phil Spencer recently spoke about giving first-party studios more time to ensure they deliver good quality games at launch, and this applies to Forza as well.
Another one of Microsoft’s studios, Playground, develops the Forza Horizon spin-off series. The most recent entry was 2018’s Forza Horizon 4. The game’s latest expansion was the Lego Speed Champions add-on that was released in June.
While there is no new Forza game lined up for 2019, rival franchise Need for Speed is coming out with a new title, Need for Speed Heat, in November.
