Microsoft and Turn 10 have announced Forza Motorsport 6 which will be released exclusively for the Xbox One console.

Microsoft has also struck a partnership with Ford which will bring the new GT and other cars to Forza Motorsport 6. The all-new GT model was debuted recently at the North American International Auto Show. The car will also grace the cover for the game. Other cars that will be in Forza Motorsport 6 include the GT, Shelby GT530 Mustang and F-150 Raptor.

“It is an honour to share this historic moment with Ford and celebrate the legacy of the GT by making it the featured cover car of ‘Forza Motorsport 6,’” said Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox. “We’re thrilled to have the unique opportunity to announce ‘Forza Motorsport 6’ the day the car debuts – on one of the biggest stages in the automotive industry, and we can’t wait to share more details on the game later this year.”

“The Ford GT is the ultimate execution of an enthusiast supercar, delivering ultra-efficient EcoBoost performance, driver-centric technology and lightweight carbon fiber construction,” said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, Global Product Development. “Working with Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios allows us to share our all-new GT supercar with an unprecedented global audience, giving fans an opportunity to virtually experience the beauty, thrill and innovation of Ford’s performance line-up.”

Forza Motorsport 6 will be playable at the E3 event in June. The game is once again being developed by Turn 10.
