Forza Motorsport 3 – Le Mans Announcement?

Even though Microsoft is yet to confirm the development of Forza Motorsport 3, the existence of Turn 10’s newest Xbox 360 racing title is probably the worst kept secret in the gaming industry. Back in 2008, first posters and infos were leaked, suggesting that Forza 3 will contain over 100 tracks and 400 cars.

During the past weeks, leaked infos could be found all over the place as the Forza 3 logo was “accidentally” included in a Microsoft press conference in Brazil and Amazon already listed the game’s official strategy guide.

Most interesting is a new promo shot that shows the Circuit de la Sarthe at Le Mans, together with the date 12th June 2009. That date is Friday before this year’s Le Mans 24 Hours, a break day that is typically reserved for all kinds of press conferences and announcements. Will Turn 10 announce some Le Mans related partnership for Forza 3 that day? Microsoft is already sponsoring the Peugeot Sport squad and recent rumors suggest an upcoming promotional partnership with Audi who are going head to head with the French manufacturer in this year’s race.

We don’t have to wait until mid-June for first confirmed Forza 3 facts as Microsoft is expected to announce the title at this year’s E3 expo in early June.

    I am so looking forward to this game, I have clocked hundreds of hours into forza 2, have 1000 gamerscore and all the dlc. This is a preorder for me without a doubt.

    :weird: I wish they put a decent Spa Francorchamps track… and if they’re emulate GT5, an F1 car would be a dream come true 😎

    Hope the development team can pay afforts on the car models, those car models in Forza2 are nowhere accurate at all, especially the McLaren F1 GTR Longtail.

    yeah concentrate on quality not quantity or try to compete against gt5, instead do their own thing and be unique..

    As long as they include a good in car view, Forza will continue to be the better series. GT5 already has this so no weak excuses will do.

    And yes, it looks like they included a good in car view 😀
