Forza And Toyota--The Iconic Manufacturer Is Returning To Xbox's Racing Giant

Forza Horizon 4 has an enormous car list, but one major manufacturer is underrepresented on it. Toyota, the world's largest car manufacturer, has limited licensing agreements on most of its models. Toyota has been unclear on why this is the case, beyond previously intimating in a since-deleted tweet that games like Need for Speed promote illegal street racing. While Toyota is prevalent in Gran Turismo Sport, they were scarce in Forza Motorsport 7 and Forza Horizon 4. Toyota has three...

Now, Koch Media CEO Klemens Kundratitz has spoken out about the next game in the series, which is in the works within the studio of series developer Volition.

Shenmue Director Yu Suzuki Is Hoping To Make Shenmue 4

Shenmue 3, the much anticipated third chapter in the long-dormant series, is finally out now. There was an 18 year gap between Shenmue 2 and this latest release; the second game hit the Dreamcast back in 2001, and Shenmue 3 was only possible thanks to a record-breaking Kickstarter campaign. Considering how difficult it was to get Shenmue 3 made, there was speculation that series director Yu Suzuki would use the game to wrap up his saga, which was originally envisioned to span 11 chapters (a...
