Forza Motorsport listing details Smart Delivery, but not Xbox One

The new Forza Motorsport will seemingly support Smart Delivery even though it’s not listed as being available on Xbox One.

The game’s listing was spotted by a Redditor yesterday, whereby Forza Motorsport was listed as supporting “4K, 60FPS, DirectX Raytracing, Smart Delivery”. Indeed, even the Xbox ANZ listing for Forza Motorsport lists “Smart Delivery” support but specifically details available platforms as “Xbox Series X, Windows 10 PCs”.

According to Microsoft itself, Smart Delivery “means that if you purchase the Xbox One version of a supported title, we will deliver the best version of it to your Xbox One, as usual. If you decide to jump into the next generation with Xbox Series X, we will automatically provide the Xbox Series X version of the game at no additional cost when it becomes available.”

As we’ve reported, Smart Delivery also means cross-buy and cross-saves across Microsoft’s platforms, so it could be that this listing refers to those features over Xbox Series X and PC.

We’ve gone to Microsoft for some clarification on the matter and will report back when more is known.

Forza Motorsport was announced at the Xbox Games Showcase last month.

  • The game doesn’t support Xbox One, however, the inclusion of Smart Delivery can still be explained. Xbox Series S is rumoured to be a 1080p machine, it is possible that Smart Delivery will deliver 1080p assets to the Series S to keep the install size down on that system. This is purely speculation so take with grain of salt.
