Forza Street announced its closure in the spring.
in a InstructionsAndy Bowdoin, Turn 10 Studios’ chief design officer, said the “difficult decision” to close Forza Street was made “after careful consideration.”
Bedouin added that the team is now “shifting its focus to new and exciting Forza experiences.”
“We understand that this is difficult news for our players, however we wanted to take this moment to share our gratitude and thank everyone who joined us on our first journey to mobile devices.”
Originally released on PC In April 2019 before a mobile launch Set in 2020, Forza Street is designed as an accessible and fast-paced spin-off of the popular Turn 10 Studios series, featuring “less than a minute” street races where players compete to unlock new cars and upgrade parts.
Microsoft has described Forza Street as an “evolving experience”, promising “exciting characters, mysteries and intrigue, explored through a narrative-based campaign.”
But Forza Street has come under fire for its monetization and clearly failed to get off the ground.
As part of the closure plan, Turn 10 launched a new car, made refills faster, and reduced wait times at car shows. Prices are also reduced on all items purchased with in-game currency.
“We want to make sure that our dedicated players have the ability to achieve the group goals that we know many have been working on for some time,” Bedouin said.
Unsurprisingly, in-app purchases are disabled and refunds for purchases made in the last 30 days will be issued automatically.
As a result, Forza Street will be discontinued in the spring and will no longer be available to play.
“We would like to thank all the players who have given their time, feedback and dedication to Forza Street,” said Bowdoin.
“Our ultimate goal with the Forza franchise is to nurture a global community of car-loving gamers. Forza Street has brought a whole new group of players to Forza and we’ve learned a lot from you.
“While saying goodbye to Forza Street can be challenging, know that their DNA will continue in the next wave of products we create to excite and satisfy the passions of gamers around the world for car games, where and how they love it. play”.
