Turn 10 Studios (abbreviated to T10 or Turn 10) is an American video game developer located in Redmond, Washington. It was established in 2001 by Microsoft Studios to develop the Forza Motorsport series for the Xbox, Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles. The series evolved in a racing game franchise with the beginning of the Forza Horizon series in 2012.
Turn 10 Studios is a video game development studio located in Redmond, Washington. It was established in 2001 by Microsoft Studios to develop the Forza Motorsport series for the Xbox, Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles.
The studio began working on the original Forza Motorsport to fill the void of simulation racing games on the Xbox console. With an emphasis on driving mechanics and the newest features of Xbox LIVE, the original Forza Motorsport was released in May of 2005.
Following the release of Forza Motorsport, Turn 10 immediately began working on a sequel intended to be released on Microsoft’s then-new Xbox 360 console. Forza Motorsport 2 was released in May of 2007, pushing the boundaries of User Generated Content (UGC) with a robust livery editor and online Auction House, giving casual players new options for expressing their creativity on and off the track.
In late 2007, Turn 10 Studios began an intense development process for the next Forza installment: Forza Motorsport 3, which boasted enhanced graphics, driving physics, and UGC. Turn 10 released the game in October 2009.
With Forza Horizon on Xbox 360, developed with Playground Games, the Forza universe expanded to the open road. Action racing put the player in an open world that demands driving skill and rewards driving style. With lots to explore and a cutting-edge soundtrack to compliment the scenery, Horizon was an evolution of the authentic Forza experience.
In 2013, Turn 10 released Forza Motorsport 5, the first Forza Motorsport game to appear on Xbox One. Featuring new generation graphics and features like cloud-powered Drivatar opponents, Forza Motorsport 5 ushered in the next generation of console racing simulations.
Forza Horizon 2 was released in 2014, featuring the wide-open spaces of Southern Europe to explore in hundreds of realistic, real-world cars. The game featured full day-night cycle and, for the first time in Forza, weather effects. In March 2015, Turn 10 released Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious, a standalone expansion for Forza Horizon 2, inspired by the Fast & Furious film series and featuring many of the cars from Universal’s blockbuster action film, Furious 7.
