Universal Windows Platform Helping Bring Future Forza Games To Xbox One And PC

Gaming / PC / Xbox

The first Forza game for Windows — Forza Motorsport 6: Apex — was announced recently, and Turn 10 Studios is giving us a behind the scenes look at their development of the upcoming game using the Universal Windows Platform for Windows 10.

In the video, Turn 10’s Creative Director Dan Greenawalt and Studio Software Architect Chris Tector give a little insight into developing with the Universal Windows Platform. Tector mentions that UWP is a great platform for speeding up development and allows them to basically write code for the Forza games once and work on both the Xbox One and Windows 10 with minor tweaks. Turn 10 is looking forward to bringing not only Forza Motorsport 6: Apex to Windows 10 PCs, but also future games in the Forza franchise running at 4K resolution and 60fps.

“Moving forward, all of our games are going to be shipping on Windows 10 and Xbox,” Greenawalt said. “The Universal Windows Platform is great for the game developers and gamers alike.It’s going to become even more powerful as a way of delivering amazing experiences across all of the devices in the Windows ecosystem.”

Interestingly enough, Greenawalt mentions “all of the devices in the Windows ecosystem,” could we be seeing Forza on Windows 10 phones as well one day? Personally, I’d love to start seeing cross-buy between Xbox One and Windows 10.
