Microsoft Getting Ready to Kill Off Forza Motorsport 7, Now Cheaper Than Ever

If you didn’t already purchase Forza Motorsport 7, this is simply the best moment to do it. And it’s all for two different reasons.

First and foremost, Microsoft is getting ready to kill off the game once and for all, which means that beginning with September 15, 2021, you will no longer be allowed to purchase it. And second of all, the company has released a massive discount for the game, letting you buy the standard edition for as low as ten bucks.

If you already own Forza Motorsport 7, little is changing for you, at least for the time being. Owners will still be allowed to download the game and the associated content just like before, and Microsoft says all features, including the multiplayer services, will continue to be supported even after the September 15 deadline.

What’s changing, however, is that Xbox Game Pass users (Forza Motorsport 7 was previously offered on Game Pass, so some users purchased DLCs without actually buying the full game in the first place) will be offered tokens that will allow them to continue playing the game.

The tokens should arrive in the next few days, and if you haven’t received yours by August 2, you should reach out to Xbox Support for assistance.

In case you’re wondering why Forza Motorsport 7 is being retired given a new title is yet to be announced (Forza Horizon 5 is indeed coming later this year, but the two are unrelated), it’s because of licensing deals for certain content.

Microsoft says third-party licenses for cars, tracks, and other content will begin to expire, so the company can no longer sell the game.

In the meantime, you can buy Forza Motorsport 7 at an unbelievable price. The standard edition is now available in the Microsoft Store for just $9.99, down from the typical price of $39.99. The Deluxe Edition, on the other hand, costs $14.99 today, a price cut from no less than $59.99, while the Ultimate Edition no longer costs $79.99 but only $19.99.
