There's an interesting amount of evidence pointing out to a possible announcement of Forza PC on Wednesday, at GDC 2015 in San Francisco.
My husband loves those games! (It's the only game he plays on our Xbox One)
It looks like he would have reason to ditch XB1 then if this comes true. I personally hope it does, I don't see myself buying an Xbox One any time soon but I would love to play Forza. Besides, there's a lot of money to be made on PC with good games and Microsoft wouldn't even have to give a cut to Valve like the other publishers who use Steam.
Yeah, I'd buy Forza if it released on Steam, provided Microsoft didn't force any DX12 requirements and restrict it to Windows 10 only. Same goes for Forza horizon as well. They look like genuinely fun racing games and if they put them on PC they'll be seeing money from me :)
Forza is the one game I would be bothered buying an Xbox One for. I always wanted it on PC, a dream come true so that I wouldn't have to bother with Xbox any more but it seems unlikely. Microsoft should start up supporting PC again properly with Windows 10 by dishing out some big Microsoft studio titles for the platform. It's a bit of a pipe dream really but hey.
@kaisrfranz I agree that they should release more stuff to PC. It's money left on the table. Not everyone has a gaming rig computer so Xbox will still sell to those who want a simple under-the-TV solution, otherwise those who never intended can still give money to MS @Crimzon So you would buy this if it DIDN'T take advantage of the newest available technology? Would you also not complain if it didn't look better than Project Cars? Windows 10 is free, DX12 free with it. Don't say dumb things. @vulcanproject Agreed. I like my Xbox so will get it there, but for those who don't feel the desire having it available to PC players makes sense.
Damn, if this is legit good thing I waited on getting a xboxone.. and my pc budget just went up lol
Forza PC would be nuts....I actually want them to do it.
I think everyone would want them to do it, except those XB1 fanboys who can't see further than their nose. We'd have a bigger and happier community playing together.
Would be epic if it came with multiplayer crossplay. @Alexious Yea.. only the fanboys right?Critical thinking on your part bud /s.. Funny I don't even have a xbox one but I don't like the idea of a flagship title going multiplat.
I wonder if we will get the Jimmy Fallon E3 Edition or a port of the downgraded mess that was actually released?
If it does then they literally only have Halo left as a AAA established exclusive. I can see it happening though with MS slowly moving Xbox over To W10 to save on hardware and the feeling they are evolving to more than just a console.
I would welcome this. With PC cross play, universal apps, and more the XBox One is becoming like a Steam Box, but better, as it has all the console exclusives plus would be cool for them to start porting games over from PC to Xbox with ease with DX12. The future is now with Xbox
Seriously...The Forza games always were the only reason to ever think about getting an XBox. If this becomes true and I suspect it will I will be such an happy chap.
Stop lying... You're just saying that cuz there is a possibility of it happening. But deep down. You know you want Gears,Halo, Quantum Break, Scalebound, Phantom Dust and Fruit Ninja kinect.
@Crimzon Why would you not like it if its only on Windows 10? It's a FREE upgrade that's better than Windows 7 and 8. If its coming to PC its definitely gonna be exclusive to Windows 10 and probably with Xbox One to PC play too. Little off-topic: Phil Spencer said that they are seriously looking at the possibility of Xbox One running PC games. Imagine that. If that happens Xbox wins this gen by default. The Bajillion of exclusive PC games all available on Xbox One.
Forza will not come to PC that has been said already
Xbox one will not be sold without kinect, thats has been said already. See where im going. Not saying it will but.....
Don Mattrick said that. When Phil became head it was unbundled immediately.
It has been said, yes. It's in the article, they said: We have no plans of releasing Microsoft Studios Xbox One titles on PC. That was one year ago. Now they do, they're releasing Fable Legends day and date with crossplay and they're also releasing Xbox Live on Windows 10 basically. A Turn10 developer is also going to speak in a session about "developing games on W10".... Not saying it's necessarily true, but I can definitely see it happening.
i could see it happening, microsoft is wanting to push windows 10 and most money is made off of software and services, not hardware. the xbox one will always have an audience even if these games come to the pc. want proof? look at the top selling games on consoles, most can be bought on the pc.
Fable 1 and 3 were on Windows, so therefore it was never an Xbox exclusive series to begin with.
@moldybread Push windows 10 and forget about Xbox? And what pushing, windows 10 is already FREE there's not much more pushing you can do.
@TheNew1 how are they forgetting the xbox if forza comes to the pc? that makes no sense at all. windows 10 also works with the xbox so how is that forgetting the xbox one? microsoft wants you to belong to their ecosystem. windows 10, xbox, xbox live, skype, cloud services. these are all areas they can make money off of consumers and windows 10 is not free for everyone. they are offering a free upgrade for a one year period to those who want to upgrade from windows 7 and 8.1. do you know how many millions still use xp?
With PC gaming on the rise and games selling nearly equal numbers as on a console I guess from a Financial standpoint it would indeed be better to release on PC.
Absolutely, no question about that. And it looks like finally MS is noticing the treasure trove that is the PC gaming market and wants to get a big chunk of it.
Sounds promising, but not my favourite series but Burnout seems to be over nowadays
Forza on PC is going to be awesome and I admit Burnout was a great series that turned dead way too soon as it had the potential to become a classic my favorite car games of all time till now are Driveclub and Burnout Paradise
Probably another windows 10 deal if it goes threw :/. Im all for games crossing over but as with every new windows release i don't like being held to ransom on games i can and can not play esp when I'm sitting here with a gtx980 on windows 8 :D.
All I will say is go and find out how much the Windows 10 upgrade will cost for Windows 7 and 8 users. You might be pleasantly surprised.
Yeah, it's going to be free. Which ties into everything as Microsoft wants to dominate utterly with Windows10 and having two killer applications like Fable Legends and a Forza game would go a long way towards convincing gamers that Microsoft is serious about PC once again.
http://www.techradar.com/ne... Its free for a year m8 then you pay
@ninjamonkey: that means you have to upgrade for free in the first year and then it's yours forever
Its not totally free, free for the first year. And more then likely will require a yearly subscription fee.
No, you have a year to upgrade to Windows 10 from 7 or 8 for free. Once you do this it is free for the life of the device.
@Utalkin2me no there is a time limit where you can upgrade for free. So you have 12 months from when windows 10 comes out to upgrade to it and if you don't upgrade to it within 12 months of it being out you will have to pay for a copy. If you upgrade in the 1st 12 months there is no charge at all.
Well that would be sweet would get it for both platforms I enjoy that much.
Nah I doubt it. Fable Legends is their first party game that's going to PC. I would be disappointing to see another first party game go to PC for people that bought an Xbox One for it.
Bringing games like Forza or Sunset overdrive onto pc is cool imo. With some cross-play scheme and i can see fan-base of these games expanding. But i wouldn't want Halo on pc with cross-play stuff cuz Pc dudes will destroy Xbox bros. Still, i guess it's nice to have that option available. THen M$'ll put out more money to make more Xbox exclusive games. *fingers cross*
It would be cool to play it on PC as it streams from the Xbox one,hope they are not stupid to where they hurt Xbox ones sales Hopefully they make all games that will be cross play have to be bought from the window store. Would hate to see them share any of their money with that fat POS from steam .
Steam is a Pc gamers dream and we can thank Lord Gaben for that. Can you name a better Pc service? Or even console service that is better than the excellent and free Steam service?
Whatever Microsoft releases on PC as well should automatically have cross play with Xbox One counterparts.
I dunno. I have a feeling gamers will cry foul on the KB/M for FPS games. Crossplay is a great feature, but doesnt have to be in all Microsofts Pc releases.
Console gamers would have no chance in a FPS against a KB/M.
Which is why I don't think we'll ever see a true halo game on PC. Unless they can require them to have a controller.
Ooohhhh sheeet, let me see yo hips swing! FORZA4k, cu,cu,comin up!
That's great. More people get to play. Cross-platform?
Best to not expect steam for MS studio games like this. Xbox live is pretty much coming to PC if Fable Legends account sync is anything to go buy. They would integrate the experiences with cross play in a locked down environment. I am all for Forza on both platforms because community will be larger, and that means less crappy car designs recommended.
I don't know much about how steam works. Couldn't they sell games on steam, but still require the user to log into an Xbox live account to play online?
Yeah who doesn't love pointless extra DRM on their purchases. If their is one thing I can give EA is at least they don't sell their origin games on steam like Ubi sells their games that come with stupid Uplay.
If you buy a game off steam you can still play it directly from the desktop (without logging onto the steam network). In theory, you could just click the game and choose which multiplayer network to play on (XBL or Steam), I don't see them being linked as in logging into both networks simultaneously, but the aforementioned solution would work just fine.
@lawson72 It's not about the drm. It's about the cross-play... Surely the user would need to be on Xbox servers for that to work...
Microsoft acquiring steam confirmed.
I'm not saying you should NEED a live account to play the game (DRM), but if they wanted to implement cross-play, allow people to carry their progress or DLC purchases over to the PC version, or use any of the Xbox on windows perks (Xbox rewards, dvr, achievements, friends lists, etc) there would need to be a way to link to their xbox live account. My question is if user buy games through steam, do they have the option to utilize online services other than steam? One of the defining features of Forza is the drivatars that use azure servers to populate your races with AI that mimics your XBL friends. For that to work on PC, the game would either need access to live, or MS would have to rework the system to work with steam profiles. The former seams more plausible.
MS needs to make games on PC have cross play with Xbox One. If Forza or KI is coming to PC, don't split the community.
Exactly my thoughts, however I would feel very differently about Halo as far as competitive FPS gaming goes. It flat out would not be fair.
If so..there is no point X1 to exist.
Not all gamers have gaming PC.
Seemingly not everyone realizes that. PC gaming is still much more expensive.
Finally....was about time....cant wait to wednesday.
Wow if that happens the XB1 will barely have any exclusives left for their system.
It will be Windows 10/XBL Title, so MS is making money on both platforms and intergrating the Window10 gamers with XBL. Not all gamers can afford a gaming rig or maybe dont want to deal with the maintenance. Last I checked you cant play Xbox exclusives on Nintendo and PS4 so its still a console exclusive. As a console only gamer Im glad MS is showing love to PC gamers. I ive read plenty of comments through out the years on many forums on how MS abandoned PC gamers. Well maybe its time to get them back. When Phil Spencer took over he said MS was going back to PC gaming, this is the start of that promise! Man one more reason for me to envy PC gamers will be theyre options for Steering Wheels..
If this was confirmed I would probably jump through a roof. Having Project Cars and Forza would definetly keep me busy on PC
Smh, just plain wrong. Reasons why you cannot play Sony games on pc, oh yes, so that you buy and support the f#@/:ng platform. Not water it down and split the fan base all the while effectively dicking on the platforms adopters. I hope that I'm somehow wrong, or that this is an April fools come early.
The author has pretty much no basis for this, his only reason is that there will be a presentation about developing games on windows 10, seemingly ignoring that xbox will have it too. And to the people claiming that this will be like Fable, do you not realise that the series was always on PC?
Come on man, really? So Windows 10 is all about Xbox One now? Guess what, it's not, it's mainly about PC. You seem in denial. Remember that Phil promised more PC games and it was even said that Fable Legends was just the first in a series of franchises coming to PC. Forza seems to fit the criteria.
Sorry Fable was not born on PC, you're mistaken.
If it happens, they confirm that X1 is so low in power, they have to release game on PC, because they can deliver much more but all of this is lost due to the weak hardware.
seems legit, il be upgrading my gfx card asap already done the cpu will be excellent to play xbox games without buying an xbox great stuff!
100% agree You're in for a real treat if this is true. The last Forza game scored an 86 on metacritic. No other livened game on consoles even comes close.
