Turn 10 Studios has been continuously monitoring Forza Motorsport ever since it launched on October 10, 2023. Update 1 for Forza Motorsport provided various progression and stability adjustments being implemented for all platforms, complete with graphical, multiplayer, and accessibility changes. The update was administered one week after the game’s release on October 17. It was later supplemented with a hotfix that was released on October 24. Now, with newly reported issues being looked at and configured, players can expect a ton of changes to come for the next update.
With a preview into Update 2 for Forza Motorsport, Turn 10 Studios is applying a wide variety of fixes that touch on multiple gameplay factors. These fixes with Update 2 include adjustments for gameplay stability, Livery Editor, multiplayer aspects, cars, and more. Stability will continue to be a work-in-progress for the developer, with Turn 10 Studios stating that it’s “an area that we’ll continue to work on beyond Update 2 with additional improvements coming to Forza Motorsport in future updates.”
In addition, a particular issue with an infinite loading screen occurring during a Quick Upgrade in the Builders Cup is currently being looked at. It was originally a part of the 1.1 hotfix for Forza Motorsport, though some players are still experiencing issues with it. These changes will be part of the massive push with Update 2 as Turn 10 Studios plans to administer over 200 fixes.
Update 2 is set to deliver quality-of-life improvements and a new track, Yas Marina. Not much is known about the new location, though it signals the start of Turn 10 Studios delivering monthly content updates for Forza Motorsport. Players can expect new free tracks to race on, live events to participate in, Featured Tours to complete, and more multiplayer features to explore in Forza Motorsport.
While Turn 10 Studios continues to update its gameplay aspects and cars for Forza Motorsport, players can switch their attention to the Troubleshooting Hub for further information on known issues. There are many reported bugs and glitches that are being shared by players, and it’s likely that some of the issues will be resolved with Update 2. Forza Motorsport fans can expect the new content and bug fixes to arrive sometime in mid-November, 2023.
