End of Life announcement
Turn 10’s Brian Ekberg announced in a ForzaMotorsport.net blog post on August 2nd, 2019 that Forza Motorsport 6 would be removed from sale on September 15th. The announcement detailed that the game was being added to the Games With Gold program starting August 15th and that a majority of its DLC (including an all-inclusive $100 bundle) would be on sale for roughly two weeks. The announcement read:
Earlier this week, Xbox announced its August lineup of Xbox Games With Gold titles which, starting on August 15, will include Forza Motorsport 6. If you are an Xbox Live Gold member, you’ll be able to pick up this modern classic Forza game at no additional cost. In addition, there are some amazing deals on FM6 add-on content during this time period, including a bundle of all FM6 add-on content available for a mere $5. That sale starts on August 15 and will only be available for a short period of time so, if you haven’t already played Forza 6, don’t miss this chance time to revisit this classic slice of Forza history.
Related to the above, Forza Motorsport 6 will enter “End of Life” status on September 15. This means that the game and its associated add-on content (including car packs and expansions) will no longer be available for purchase. Players who own Forza 6 before that date will still be able to download and play the game and its associated add-on content as normal but the game and add-on content will no longer be available for purchase on the Xbox Live Marketplace.
As with other delisted Forza titles, Forza Motorsport 6 was most likely delisted due to the expired licensing of music and vehicles featured in the game. As of this writing it is uncertain when the free-to-play PC iteration, Forza Motorsport 6: Apex, will be delisted.
