Turn 10 Principal Design Director, Andy Beaudoin, posted to the Forza Support site on January 10th to announce the upcoming end of service for Forza Street. The Android, iOS, and Windows 10 title has been running since 2019 on PC and only since May of 2020 on mobile. You can read the full announcement below but you may notice that there’s no mention of exactly when the game will be shut down. Unfortunately, the answer is a vague “Spring 2022” for most of the world, and only mentioned in the accompanying FAQ.
Spring can mean a few different things when it comes to business calendars but it would generally be between March and June. The best guess we have right now comes from TrueAchievements reader Joonas who points out that the current in-game event ends on April 10th, three months to the day from Turn 10’s announcement. A dedicated Japanese support page indicates that the game will be playable until April 11th in that territory. Although unconfirmed for the rest of the world, the end of the month seems like a reliable deadline to pencil in on your calendar until we know for certain.
We have an important announcement. After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to close Forza Street as the team shifts its focus to new and exciting Forza experiences. We understand this is tough news for our players, however, we wanted to take this time to share our gratitude and thanks to all who joined us on our first journey into mobile.
The good news is there is still time to enjoy the game and celebrate our players with new content. As a thank you to our players, beginning today we are offering:
– A new unreleased car
– Rare & Epic Spotlights
– Faster Energy Recharge and reduced wait times on car shows
– Reduced prices on all items purchased with in-game currency
We want to ensure our dedicated players have an opportunity to finish off the collection goals we know so many have been working on for some time.
The game will continue to run through this spring when access will be ultimately discontinued and the product will no longer be available to play.
With the closure of Forza Street happening soon, we will no longer be accepting in-app purchases. We will also be automatically refunding any purchases made by players within the past 30 days. These refunds will be executed automatically, according to the policies of the stores in which they were made, so please refer to the appropriate store for details.
We would like to thank all the players who have given their time, feedback, and dedication to Forza Street. Our top goal for the Forza franchise is to foster a global community of players who love cars. Forza Street brought in a whole new set of players to Forza and we’ve learned a ton from you. While saying goodbye to Forza Street may be difficult, know that its DNA will live on in the next wave of products we create to excite, delight, and satisfy the automotive gaming passions of players across the world, where and how they like to play.Andy Beaudoin, Principal Design Director, Turn 10 Studios
I’ve added the tentative date of April 11th to the Watch List calendar and will have a page up on the site later. Thanks again to Wakayama_PT for pointing out the news.
