Ford GT To Lead Charge For 'Forza Motorsport 6’ Release

Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios used the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan to announce that Forza Motorsport 6 is currently in development and will race over to the Xbox One console as an exclusive sometime this year. Not only that, but it will also feature the newly unveiled Ford GT as its cover car.

Ford and it's newest vehicles will be featured prominently in Forza Motorsport 6. In addition to the Ford GT, Forza Motorsport 6 will also allow games to drive Ford's Shelby GT350 Mustang and F-150 Raptor, both of which Ford debuted earlier today at the auto show.

"Just as Ford has pushed the boundaries of car technology in GT, Forza Motorsport 6 will embrace that spirit of innovation as our most technically advanced racing simulation to date, offering a fun and realistic automotive experience for both car lovers and gamers," said Dan Greenawalt, creative director at Turn 10 Studios. "We’re excited to unveil gameplay at E3 in June."

This marks the 10-year anniversary of the Forza Motorsport series. It follows Forza Motorsport 5, a launch title for the Xbox One featuring the McLaren P1 as its cover car, and more recently Forza Horizon 2, an open-road driving variant showcasing the Lamborghini Huracán.
