Forza Motorsport has officially been released to the public. As always with sim racers, Forza fans will likely flock to the game’s multiplayer modes to test their skills and fortitude against both their friends and other players. But with the gaming economy as big as it is right now, many might wonder whether or not the latest entry into the Forza Motorsport series supports cross-platform gaming, making it possible to play with friends and strangers on other systems. So, does Forza Motorsport have crossplay? Here’s what we know.

Is Forza Motorsport Crossplay? Answered

Being a next-gen Microsoft exclusive — limiting the title’s release to the PC and Xbox Series X|S platforms — Forza Motorsport does have a somewhat limited player base. However, Forza Motorsport does have a crossplay function. That means you can play with friends on both the Xbox Series and PC platforms. In fact, this is one of the game’s central features regarding multiplayer.

There’s no way to turn off crossplay in Forza Motorsport, forcing players on each platform to play against each other. This may or may not be a good thing, depending on your skill level. Though players with controller setups on a console can be viable against players on PC, most of the latter will have much more elaborate rigs — such as a wheel, pedals, and chair — tailored-made for sim racing. If you’re on console, it’s best that you constantly practice if you wish to be competitive.

Yes, Forza Motorsport has cross-play between the Xbox Series X|S and PC. For more Forza Motorsport guides, be sure to continually check in on its dedicated hub.
