Rumor: NASCAR Expansion Coming To Forza 6

Update: Microsoft has commented on an image that apparently shows a NASCAR DLC expansion for Forza Motorsport 6.

A spokesperson sent us the following comment from Microsoft: "We will have more details to share soon – stay tuned."

As opposed to the usual "no comment," this is good news!


Original Story:

Forza 6 has gotten plenty of post-release DLC cars and content, and if this picture is correct, stock cars may be the next addition to the sim-racer.

A reader on Reddit has posted a picture of a digital download retail slip in the UK for what appears to be a NASCAR expansion (for £15.99).

No other details are evident via the shot, but we can hope that it includes specific campaign races similar to the game's recent Porsche expansion.

We've reached out to Microsoft for more information, and will share if we get any.

Our Take
Gran Turismo 5 featured the NASCAR license, and if this rumor is true, I expect it to be of a similar scope. In other words, I would be pleasantly surprised if it included all of Sprint Cup cars (more than 40) and drivers. That being said, it would be interesting to see how the stock cars handle on road courses and perhaps even in the rain.
