The game will be delisted on September 15 due to the expiry of various car and track licenses, which means Microsoft can no longer sell the game. This will also mean the game will be removed from Xbox Game Pass.
However, anyone who buys Forza 7 before it’s delisted will have it permanently added to their library and will be able to re-download it at any time after it’s been delisted.
Multiplayer and online services will also remain available after the game is delisted.
The announcement was originally made in a post on the Forza blog in late July, in which Turn 10 community manager Jacob Norwood stated that the game was due to be delisted.
To ensure as many players as possible can buy it before it’s removed, Microsoft has reduced the price of the Forza 7 Standard Edition to $9.99 / £7.49, while the $79.99 Forza 7 Ultimate Edition (which includes the Car Pass and VIP Pass DLC) is currently $19.99 / £17.49.
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.
In June, developer Playground Games stopped adding new cars and features to Forza Horizon 4 ahead of the sequel’s release.
