Turn 10 and Xbox Research are inviting Forza players of all stripes to participate in a feedback program, aimed at guiding development of both future and current projects.
Forza Feedback — officially called the Turn 10 Feedback Program — is an official panel dedicated to improving the Forza game series, covering not only Forza Motorsport, but Forza Horizon and Forza Street too. It’s largely based around surveys, but Turn 10 comments that players might be invited to take part in focus groups and gameplay sessions to help with the research effort.
Players can take part by clicking on the link in the social media post below, though be aware that you’ll need a gamertag, be aged 18 or over, and of course sign and accept a confidentiality agreement:
We’re seeking players of all skill levels to sign up for our https://t.co/GruP2JDHTx panel to get involved with current and future projects. You’ll receive occasional surveys and other invites to participate.

That will take you through to an initial survey, which covers the usual bases: age, gender, and gaming interests. Several of the questions in the survey also refer to disabilities and accessibility functions, something to which Forza, and particularly FH4, pays close attention.
Users who end up making the cut for the panel will then receive invitations to surveys and other studies over the coming months. Furthermore, players may receive program incentives for participating, although it’s not entirely clear what form these incentives will take. You can also opt out if you wish.
Those players who do end up on the panel will have a role to play in influencing the ongoing development of current titles, like Forza Horizon 4, as well as those we expect to see in the next couple of years like Forza Horizon 5 and the Forza Motorsport series reboot.
