Forza Horizon 3, Gears of War 4, and Forza Motorsport 6 rumored for Windows 10 release

Microsoft appears to be taking Windows 10 more serious this year if these rumors turn out to be true.

It appears Quantum Break and Gears of War Ultimate may not be the only Xbox exclusive title to make its way to Windows 10 as Forza Motorsport 6, Gears of War 4, Scalebound, and the yet-to-be revealed Forza Horizon 3 are rumored to also be making their way to the platform.

According to WPDang, Microsoft plans on beefing up its Windows 10 game efforts by offering once Xbox exclusive titles onto the platform via its Windows Store. The publication points to a number of unnamed sources who claim the previously-mentioned titles will be making their debut on Windows 10, although when that will happen is yet to be revealed.

If these rumors turn out to be true, these games will be in good company as we already learned Fable Legends, ReCore, Killer Instinct, and Halo Wars 2 are all coming to Windows 10.

      Forza on Windows would be fucking great, but the Windows App store can go fuck itself. Steam or GTFO.

        Won't happen sadly... I'm sure any XB1 cross platform like this will be Windows Store only.

        The whole point is to push Store adoption.

          If Borderless Fullscreen is enforced on these games?

      C'mon Red Dead. We know you're making it compatible with the One...

        Lol. You think that's coming out for PC with backwards compatibility? That's not how this works. It's not how any of this works.

          I imagine once emulation of the 360 get's there that'll be the way to play the game on PC. Rock Star doesn't seem all that interested in making a PC version happen.

            That would take another push to get publishers allowing this again. It also would take some of the ouster of having xbone BC

          Hey dude. Look what happened with Dragons Dogma, and it turned out to be super worth it for Capcom. A person can dream, just need less negative Nancys...

      I saw trending in Facebook that buying Quantum Break on either one platform will give it to you on both. Would be cool if this is what MSFT does with their titles with 3rd parties following suit.

        Wouldn't that kill Xbox, though? If almost nothing is exclusive anymore and can be played on both platforms, why would I want to buy Xbox? I mean one thing going for it is price, which is much less than a powerful PC, but they would discourage a big portion of their potential customers from buying an Xbox at all.

        Risky strategy and I'm not sure what the end game would be. I would happily play all Halo games on a PC one day, though.

          I don't think so, it'll make people leaning PC feel like they can buy an XB1 so they can play on their PC or console since they're gonna be synced across platforms with game saves. Or XB1 owners who have a PC get the game and play it now until they upgrade their PC and play it on that as well. Owners of both can play on either depending if someone else at home is on one or the other. Something people with the Wii-U or Playstation cross-buy enjoyed

          Microsoft already killed the Xbox with the original unveiling. They then brought it back to life to kill it again at the follow E3 :P

          Joking aside I think their strategy for the Xbox platform has changed, and I wonder if Microsoft no longer views the "war for the living room" a worthy cause.

      Omfg yes please. I've been hoping for Forza games on PC for years but always figured it would never happen because it's sort of a system seller, not as much as the halo series but still.

        Guess they want the Windows Store boost so it can compete with Steam, UPlay, etc. Not to mention it's not just for games.

      I've played FH2 more than any other game. Playing it in vulcan-mode would be even sweeter.

      If I could actually use my G27 with Forza, hell yes. Also, Oculus/VR support would be awesome as well.

      Forza is the only reason I occasionally contemplate getting an X1

      My question is are we getting PC specific versions, or is it going to be Windows 10 doing some emulation magic on the back end to allow you to play the XboxOne version of a game on your PC? While access to the game on any giving platform will make a lot of people happy, I can also see those who more...PC elitist? Shunning the games for not supporting higher framerates, or increased graphical fidelity.

        February 15, 2016 4:17 PM

        I wouldn't be surprised if it was also announced for Windows 10. I mean, if something like Gears of War can make it to the platform, then Crackdown could.

          Dunno. With the "cloud computing" being thoroughly used it could be different in that circumstance.

      From the other thread, worth a read before buying anything from Windows store.

      Amazing news! Man if they bring Forza Horizon 2 one of my favorite racers as well I would truly freak out. Gaming Gods please make it so.

      Man finally playing Forza in three screen mode would be insane on MAX 60fps, my body is ready :)

      Man if they really bring Horizon 2 over I don't even care what happens to NFS any more.

      I really think MS is going to catch on to this trend they really have nothing to loose its only going to give them more first party sales. If they consider how many potential Windows users there are(and I am sure they finally get that) the possibles are massive.

      Man 2016 is going to own.
