A Forza X leak surfaced a few days ago and Turn 10 Studios Big Boss Alan Hartman debunked it immediately. The leak then hyped the fans for the anticipated release of Forza Motorsport 7, which could be this year.
The original thread started on 4Chan, but after it was removed another user posted it on NeoGAF. It continued on until user dirty_paws__ uploaded the photo on Twitter and got the attention of Hartman.
The thread starter over at NeoGAF speculated on the possibility of it being a brand new mode or add-on for Forza Motorsport 7. Hartman only said that he would never approve of that logo, but he did not deny the existence of Forza X.
Microsoft Studios launched Forza Motorsport 6 worldwide on September 15, 2015. The following year of the same month, Forza Horizon 3 came out, so it means that publishers are just following a pattern in its releases.
Looking at the pattern, Microsoft might release Forza Horizon 7 in September 2017. Meanwhile, developer Turn 10 Studios might make the official announcement of the game at E3 2017 in June.
Sequel to Forza Motorsport 6 Confirmed
Fanatec CEO Thomas Jackermeier posted in their forums on November 2016 about the meeting he had with the developers of the game. Jackermeier discussed with Turn 10 Studios several things regarding the next Forza Motorsport entry.
It most likely confirms the existence of Forza Motorsport 7 and that they might have already started its development. The thread starter wanted to know if there are any wheel, pedal, shifter or other related issues that players have encountered in Forza Motorsport 6.
Jackermeier confirmed that the next Forza Motorsport title has a good chance of having new and improved features. Aside from that, he did not confirm what features that fans might see in the next game.
