Rumor has it fans of the Forza series of racing games will have lots to be excited about in the coming months. Forza Motorsport 6, Forza Horizon 3, and a host of other first-party Microsoft titles may be…driving…to the Windows Store on Microsoft’s new Windows 10 operating system.
According to Chinese Windows Phone website WPDang, Microsoft is trying to shift its gaming strategy into…overdrive…by capitalizing on the gaming potential of Windows 10. As part of this strategy, Microsoft is trying to promote the Windows Store as a primary…highway…through which games can be downloaded and played by PC users. The company will…rev up…this strategy in April, when Quantum Break releases for PC and Xbox One, with Xbone preorders coming with a free Windows version. It’s rumored that Gears of War 4 may also follow this release structure.
While Forza 6 was released in September 2015 for Xbox One and is only now getting a [probable] port to PC, WPDang also revealed the impending arrival of Forza Horizon 3, a title that had not yet been confirmed but was expected based on previous development cycles.
Microsoft seems to be…driving…its PC gaming offerings at least as hard as its console market. While upcoming titles like Forza Horizon 3 and Gears of War 4 may see wider distribution on PC than on console, WPDang noted that console syncronization may play a key role in this cross-platform marketing strategy.
While the Quantum Break release has been finalized, Microsoft hasn’t yet revealed information on the later titles. Updates are expected to follow as the story…brakes.
