Forza Motorsport will be removed from the Microsoft Store on September 15th. After that day players won’t be able to buy the game or any of its DLC. This also means the game will be removed from Xbox Game Pass. The game hits End of Life status on that day, which is probably happening due to car and/or music licenses.
Players who have purchased DLC for the game while playing with Xbox Game Pass will receive a token, so they can keep on playing. This effectively means Microsoft is gifting Forza Motorsport 7 to all players who have bought DLC while playing via Xbox Game Pass. Meanwhile, for people who have never played the game; they’ll be able to purchase the game till September 15th with a 75 percent discount.
You can read the statement by Turn 10 Studios below:
”On September 15, 2021, Forza Motorsport 7 will reach End of Life status. This means that the game and its DLC will no longer be available to purchase in the Microsoft Store or available with Xbox Game Pass.
However, after September 15, players who already own Forza Motorsport 7 will still be able to download and play the game and its associated content as normal. In addition, features like multiplayer and online services will still be accessible for those who own the game.
For any Xbox Game Pass players who previously purchased DLC for the game, but not the game itself, we have good news! You will receive a token for the game through the Xbox Message Center so that you can continue playing Forza Motorsport 7. Token distribution will be through August 2. However, if after that date you have not received your token, please contact Xbox Support here. (Unused tokens will expire on September 15, 2023.)
If you know someone who has yet to play Forza Motorsport 7, we are offering a discount on the game in the Microsoft Store through September 15.
For anyone keeping an eye on our Rivals events with our esports partners, after September 15 we will continue to provide content to support our partners’ esports competitions with new Rivals events coming soon, so there’s still be plenty of racing action to be had.”
