From mid-September, the title and its DLC will no longer be available to purchase in the Microsoft Store or available with Xbox Game Pass.
Players who already own the game and any DLC will still be able to download and play it after that date, while multiplayer and online services will remain available too.
Xbox Game Pass players who previously purchased Forza Motorsport 7 DLC will also receive a token for the game so that they can continue playing after it’s removed from sale. Tokens should be distributed by August 2 and will expire on September 15.
“For anyone keeping an eye on our Rivals events with our esports partners, after September 15 we will continue to provide content to support our partners’ esports competitions with new Rivals events coming soon, so there’s still be plenty of racing action to be had,” Norwood said.
Forza Motorsport 7 has also been discounted, with the standard edition now priced at $9.99 / £7.49 / €9.99, the Deluxe Edition at $14.99 / £12.49 / €12.49, and the Ultimate Edition at $19.99 / £17.49 / €19.99.
The next Forza Motorsport game promises to deliver “a huge generational leap” for the series, according to creative director Chris Esaki, who recently discussed “revamping and deepening” its physics and core gameplay.
Forza Horizon 5 will be released on November 9, 2021 for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PC.
Developer Playground Games recently stopped adding new cars and features to Forza Horizon 4 ahead of the sequel’s release.
