Turn 10 Studios have shared the patch notes for the upcoming Forza Motorsport Update 2, outlining all major changes to the circuit racer. So, here’s everything that’ll be addressed in the update, including the release date. 

Forza Motorsport received fairly positive critical reviews on release, but soon after, players pointed out the many glaring issues they were facing. Its Steam review plummeted to an all-time low for the series, and to fix many of those complaints, Turn 10 has scheduled another big update for the game.

Forza Motorsport is touted as a “live platform” by the developers that’ll continue to bring new cars to the grid, maps, and other general content. With the upcoming mid-November update, players will be getting a new track that was confirmed prior to release, as well as new cars and featured events. 

Here’s everything coming to Forza Motorsport with update 2. 

Forza Motorsport Update 2 release date

Forza Motorsport Update 2 is set to release on November 14. The last major update, 1.0, was released on October 17, and 1.1 on October 24.
