Forza 5 Won’t See a PC Release, Would Need Port or Rewrite

Colton Stuery writes: "Corporate Vice President of Microsoft Game Studios, Phil Spencer, in responding to a question on Twitter, has confirmed Forza 5 would need either a port or a complete rewrite if the game were to come to PC. The curious tweet that incited Spencer’s response asked if Forza 5 would be seen on home PC’s, as the Xbox One uses the same OS (Windows 8). Spencer claimed that the game “doesn’t run on the Windows side of the OS so any Forza on Windows would be a rewrite or port.”" (Forza Motorsport 5, PC, Xbox One)

Misleading title. He never said it wouldn't be on PC.

Forza was ran on a pc at E3 and then the graphics were downgraded for the Xbox one release

More lies. If they want to keep it on XB1, I totally get it... but we're not stupid. Don't lie and say it can't/won't run on a PC when that's clearly ALL you demoed leading up to lauch.

Forza was not running on PC lol. Eurogamer and other confirmed that many times when the games was shown throughout. Nothing was downgraded. Trolls were photoshopping pics to attack the game due to its graphical hype. No serious media that kept up with the game reported on that.

You must be talking about this Neogaf fake.

Forza 5 still looks like the right pic/side. I play it everyday. The left image was altered and faked by crazy a55 Sony fanboys.

That left pic in the Cinemabled-Neogaf was messed with. Here is a more recent video.

There is a reason only PS4 fanboys and pro Sony websites report on the "downgrade" when no other gamers and media do not. I mean come on, think!!!

Why is this news? To my knowledge, none of the Forza games came to PC and were never expected to.

Bull*hit. Microsoft simply needs an excuse to keep it exclusive to the Xbox One.

One of them? You don't know much about the PC racing scene do you. Here's a whole list of better racing sims(forza isn't even a real sim as it is).

Lol race sims and console? Yea keep the Forzas and Gts, we get a buttload of those types.

PC's took going behind the wheel to a whole another level.

I want Halo here not Forza. MS do something.
