Just a few days ago, at the Xbox Developer Direct, Forza Motorsport was shown off with extended gameplay and a longer presentation on the return of the iconic racing game franchise. However, no release date was given for the game, which was expected to launch in Spring 2023. That doesn't seem to be the case anymore, according to insider sources claiming that the game has been delayed.

Forza Motorsport Seems To Come Later Than Expected

This claim comes from industry insider Jeff Grubb, a trusted source for all kinds of leaks and reveals inside the gaming industry. On the latest episode of his Game Mess Decides podcast, Grubb talks about a Forza Motorsport delay, that was relayed to him through insider sources.

I'm feeling pretty good about this, after asking around a couple of times. It does seem that Forza is going to slip later into the year. And probably won't be the first half of the year. The timeframe I'm hearing for Forza is Q3, maybe even a little bit later than that.

So it looks like it won't be Spring, but rather the third quarter of the year, which would be somewhere between July and September. That wouldn't be too bad, but why didn't Microsoft already delay their game during their showcase?
