Xbox’s premiere racing franchise, Forza, alternating between the simulation-focused Motorsport series and the open-world-adventure-oriented Horizon series.
It took three years for the developers to bring out the massively hit Horizon 5 in 2021 after they last released Motorsport 4 in 2018. Turn 10 studios have been hard at work for six years to bring the next installment to the Motorsport series.
The cover image, shared with the tweet, shows the mentioned Cadillac Racing V Series. R sporting a bright yellow, edging ahead of the 2024 Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray in blue.
Keep away from the wall and aim for the inner side of each turn, lifting the gas pedal without braking. Go full throttle on straights and be smooth on your driving. The smoother you are, the more milliseconds that you can shave off your lap time.— Forza Motorsport (@ForzaMotorsport) May 25, 2023

Earlier, the covers used to be announced and unveiled at E3 events. However, since this year’s E3 got canceled, the Xbox showcase was the way to go. The iconic blue Ford GT in 2015 was also dropped back in 2015’s E3.
What baffled many fans is that the developers chose to restrict the cover cars to a mere tweet. One theory is that Forza Motorsport will undergo lots of updates and changes.
This means that the original cover cars are not as important as six years ago. Players and fans of the franchise are expecting a concrete release date at the showcase on June 11th.
Closing the show without a solid date for the release of Forza Motorsport would be a big mistake for the developers. Fans have big expectations from this title, given the amount of work that has gone in into bringing this game to life.
