Forza Motorsport Splitscreen Guide: Can You Play Split-Screen?

Looking to play Forza Motorsport locally with splitscreen multiplayer? Forza Motorsport will bring a new generation of simulation racing to car enthusiasts and racing fans all over the world. The game will include many new features to enhance the gameplay experience and realistic graphics to provide the ultimate racing feeling. One of the queries people may have might be whether the game will include split-screen racing like previous titles in the series. Many view racing games as a fun couch co-op title to play together, and this includes Forza. So, let’s take a look at whether Forza Motorsport will have split-screen gameplay.

Will Forza Motorsport Have Splitscreen Gameplay at Launch?

Does Forza Motorsport have splitscreen?

Unfortunately for racing fans, this year’s Forza Motorsport will not have Splitscreen gameplay at launch. In the August 2023 Forza Monthly Broadcast, the Creative Director at Turn 10, Chris Esaki, confirmed that Forza Motorsport would not have the split screen gameplay feature when the game launches in October. The feature was initially included as part of the launch, but the developers primarily focused on the graphical and rendering features. The lack of players’ split screen usage is also one reason why the feature will not be present. The split-screen mode is not the only feature that will be missing when the game launches. AI racers in multiplayer and Spectator mode will also not be available. 

Though the split-screen feature will not be available at launch, that doesn’t mean it won’t ever be added to the game. If Microsoft and Turn 10 see that there are enough players requesting the feature, then they might include it in a future update. Split-screen gameplay is a fun way to play racing games, as it certainly brings a lot of excitement when playing with friends in the same room. So,  players can certainly hope that the developers will include this feature in Forza Motorsport soon.

Forza Motorsport is set for release on October 10 on the Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Xbox One via cloud streaming. While you’re here, check out our guides hub for another popular Xbox game, Starfield.
