With Early Access to begin shortly for players who've pre-ordered the game, developer Turn 10 Studios revealed a roadmap detailing new content and plans coming soon to the game.
This announcement outlines content for its single-player offering, Career Mode, and its many multiplayer offerings, which will be available with each game update. So, if you're looking to know what's coming soon, we've detailed the roadmap and what content is arriving to Forza Motorsport post-launch.
7th November 2023 Update: This guide reflects the announcement of Update 2.0, which arrives to Forza Motorsport on 14th November 2023 for console and PC. The original reporting continues below.
Forza Motorsport Roadmap: Release Schedule
Forza Motorsport developer Turn 10 Studios unveiled new details regarding post-launch support for their upcoming racing game. This announcement focuses on new content for single-player and multiplayer options that will be added to the game following its global launch on Xbox Series X|S consoles and PC via the Microsoft Store and Steam on 10th October 2023.
New content will arrive in #ForzaMotorsport every month introducing new challenges for you and your friends to enjoy! Here’s Chris Esaki with the details and for a full breakdown of the cars and events coming in October, check out the Forza blog: https://t.co/aEeYThXHoHpic.twitter.com/99clocBJ0b— Forza Motorsport (@ForzaMotorsport) September 22, 2023
On top of the bevy of new content players can expect, there will undoubtedly be plenty of patch updates that will roll out alongside the content additions. As expected, we can expect adjustments, optimizations, bug fixes, and Quality-of-Life (QoL) improvements to ensure consistent gameplay performance and overall stability.
As for the frequency of when this content will be made available in-game, Turn 10 Studios' Creative Director Chris Esaki stated that these will be added every month. This ensures that players will "always have something new to play" as the game continues to "be an evolving racing platform" on console and PC.
Forza Motorsport Roadmap: New Race Tracks
According to the official developer post and the Live Program Overview video, Esaki confirmed that new race tracks will arrive at Forza Motorsport post-launch. He further stated that while the intention is to release new race tracks every month, due to development timelines, only some monthly updates will feature a new race track or two.
Nevertheless, he announced the first post-launch race track arriving to Forza Motorsport in its first significant update on 14th November 2023. The Update 2.0 will see the Yas Marina Circuit completely redesigned and built based on its real-world race track layout in Abu Dhabi, UAE, which includes "more flowing hairpin… for better racing and overtaking opportunities."
Forza Motorsport Roadmap: Featured & Open Tours Live Events
Likewise, players will experience new Live Events for single-player and multiplayer modes post-launch. The first is the Featured Tours for single-player or Career Mode, in which players will find two unique Featured Tours added monthly to Forza Motorsport.
Esaki said this included a themed Featured Tour and an Open Tour; the latter is for a more casual single-player experience. For the featured Tour, a series of weekly races will spotlight a specific car, which players have two weeks to complete.
The first confirmed Featured Tour, Track Tour, will spotlight competition cars in multiple races and Spotlight Cars for that given week, and completing all four weekly series unlocks a Showcase event in which the reward is the 2020 Acura #6 ARX-05 DPi. Turn 10 Studios has unveiled the weekly series events and the Spotlight Cars for the Track Tour for Forza Motorsport:
|Featured Tour||Spotlight Car||Starting Date|
|Track Day||2022 Subaru BRZ||5th October 2023|
|Built to Race||2020 KTM X-Bow GT2||12th October 2023|

The Open Tour Live Event includes four Performance Index (PI) class series: C Class, B Class, A Class, and S Class, with a theme and new content added monthly. The first Open Tour event for Forza Motorsport highlights German manufacturers with a reward car to unlock upon completion.
Forza Motorsport Roadmap: Featured Multiplayer Live Events
Aside from the Live Events for Career Mode, multiplayer modes will receive new content regularly for Forza Motorsport. This will be made available for the Spec Series and Open Series, whereby the Spec Series sees players using pre-tuned cars while the Open Series lets them use a car from their garage from a specific PI class.
These multiplayer events will rotate following the game's launch with new content and reward cars so players won't repeat content in-game. Let's look at the Live events for the Feature Multiplayer modes in Forza Motorsport:
|Spec Series Event||Open Series Event Class||Spotlight Car||Starting Date|

This mode sees players pushing their cars to their maximum to get the fastest lap using a specific car and race track, and the developer has confirmed the Featured Rivals events for the game in October 2023:
