Forza 5 more than just a 'graphics showcase', says developer

Whenever a new console launches, there are always launch titles designed to show off the new hardware at its shiniest and most eye-catching. Those titles aren't always the most interesting games, however, but that's a pitfall that Forza 5 developer Turn 10 is well aware of.

"If you think about the launch of a console, they usually have racing games - great racing games," creative director Dan Greenawalt told OXM. "Racing games are great for the launch of a console. You don't have chainsaws, knives and blood and guts and all that, so you can put them on a Happy Meal at McDonalds and promote the product. And on top of it they usually have great graphics engines."

"What you don't usually see at the launch of a console is a racing game like Forza Motorsport," he continued. "Racing gamers demand innovation across all of the different fronts, and usually the racing games at launch are fantastic, but they're a bit narrower in scope. It allows them to be very laser-focussed on just hitting that date, and being a graphics showcase. This is a Forza Motorsport. This is big. So we've got innovation across the board."

Forza Motorsport 5 is exclusive to Xbox One and will launch alongside the console on November 22nd.
