“We will soon be able to share to our people in our Forza panel, they will actually be able to get their hands on a part of our new Forza Motorsport game,” said Chris Esaki, creative director of Forza Motorsport, in an update on Twitter.

“The only way to get your hands on this part of the new Forza Motorsport title is to be part of that panel,” he revealed.
The Forza Feedback Panel is a community which developer Turn 10 works with to gather important data on what players are looking for in a new game. This panel is sent surveys to complete and are asked to join in on discussions around the development of the next Forza. By allowing people on the panel to play part of the next Forza, Turn 10 will be able to gather further feedback.
You can apply to join the Forza Feedback Panel by completing a survey.[ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/07/23/forza-motorsport-xbox-one-series-x-announcement-trailer”]
Esaki notes that Turn 10 plans to continue this format of testing in the months ahead, and so hopes that more people from the community will be able to try out the game. Essentially, if you’ve any wish to play Forza Motorsport ahead of its currently unscheduled release, then you should apply to be part of the Forza Feedback Panel.
There have been no mainline Forza games for a while now as Turn 10 decided to take time to innovate. That journey has brought it as far as revealing Forza Motorsport for Xbox Series X, which is seen as a reimagining of the series. Quite how long the game will remain in development remains to be seen, but clearly Turn 10 is taking player opinion into serious consideration as part of its plans for the series.[poilib element=”accentDivider”]
