Microsoft game Forza Street is shutting down after being released in 2018. The game was initially released on PC in 2019 before it got released as a mobile game in 2020. The racing game turns out to be a failure and finally shuts down in 2022.
About The Game
Forza Street is a free-to-play racing game released by Microsoft Corporation in 2018. Forza is a gaming franchise of stimulating racing games available in Xbox consoles, android, iOS, and Microsoft. The main big title of the Forza franchise is Forza Motorsport and Forza Horizon and Forza street is a spin-off game. It was initially released as ‘Miami Street’ in 2018 but in 2019 it was re-branded as Forza street and got released in windows 10. The game might be closing down but you can still download it from Google Play and App Store till it’s finally gone.
Anyone using windows must have played Microsoft games once in their life. They mostly release important work applications like word, excel, PowerPoint and for games, they have their video gaming brand called ‘Xbox’. Apart from that they also have some games and those aren’t any big complicated either, rather they like to keep it simple and classy. Their famous games are Microsoft Solitaire Collection, Mahjong by Microsoft, etc. They even added and upgraded many games over the year. Forza Street is also one of the games they released under the Microsoft Corporation’s name, but sadly it failed.
Why Forza Street is shutting down?
On January 10, Turn 10 Studio announced that they are closing Forza Street in spring 2022 following their statement to “shift its focus to new and exciting Forza experiences.” But why did they decide to shut it down? Mostly, people called it a big disappointment as it is part of the hit series Forza. The graphics in the PC version are satisfying but not good enough in mobile versions. But that wasn’t the main complaint. It was criticized for the excessive simplicity of the gameplay. You don’t have any control other than the accelerator, not even the car’s movement. The game also frequently crashes too.
The game was made to be played on low-end devices and its gameplay was supposed to have a short, quick racing match. You expect a big game developed by Turn 10 with Unreal Engine 4 to be amazing. But with sloppy camera work, simple gameplay, and constant glitch ruins the whole gaming experience. The game already deactivated all microtransaction and game currencies and they will also refund all the money spent within the last 30 days. Downloading a big game, with a poor gaming experience, it’s just downgrading Microsoft’s name. At least the developer assures a new better Forza series experience. It seems like it’s time to say goodbye to Forza Street.
