In 2018, you may have launched a free-to-play racing game called Miami Street. If you haven’t been keeping up with the development of the, you might have missed the fact that the title was renamed Forza Street by Microsoft, and then released on Android and iOS. Offering many vehicles, varied races, many events and micro-transactions, it has however been very low key in the news, eclipsed by the Forza Horizon 5 to come.
Unfortunately, this discretion seems to correspond to a lack of players, since the title will close its doors soon. Starting the spring 2024, the game will simply be more playable. In a dedicated FAQ, the developers indicate that they have taken this decision in order to develop new “exciting Forza products”. We won’t know more yet, but it’s possible that Microsoft is already working on a new game, able to take over while enjoying the immense success of Forza Horizon 5. It is also possible that Microsoft no longer relies on a separate game, in order to promote the development of cloud gaming.
While waiting for the servers to shut down, the developers have deployed a final update, featuring a brand new car, 12 week Spotlight event, faster energy recharging, reduced trade fair waiting times, and promotions on the vast majority of items purchasable with in-game currency. Since yesterday, the in-app store is inaccessible, and players who still have credits at the time of closure cannot be refunded. However, if you have performed a purchase in the last 30 days before closing, they will all be fully and automatically reimbursed. While waiting for news of the next Forza Motorsport, you can always take a look at the case of Forza Horizon 5, available on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and within Game Pass.
