When the people speak, Forza listens.
After being highly requested by players, the new mid-engine Corvette Stingray will finally be released for the popular Forza Horizon 4 gaming platform on Thursday, Jan. 14.
Forza and Chevy teamed up to make the announcement today, including a video that shows a Torch Red Corvette with full-length dual racing stripes noisily winding its way on curvy roads in a scene from the popular game as the following messages pop up:
3 … 2 … 1

“The Corvette has been a much-anticipated car to be available in the game, and we are excited that it will be available soon,” Forza said. “You can unlock this car by completing the Find New Roads Summer seasonal championship.”
Helping make the announcement was Corvette Racing Team member and IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Champion Jordan Taylor, who shared his love for racing the Corvette both in real life and virtually.
The 2018 racing video game was developed by Playground Games and published by Microsoft Studios for Xbox One and Microsoft Windows, as well as an enhanced version for Xbox Series X/S last November.
According to the company’s website, Forza Horizon 4 features dynamic seasons that change gameplay, unlocking new events and routes, impacting driving conditions, and transforming open-world exploration – all in native 4K and HDR. Players will be able to master driving in dry, wet, muddy, snowy and icy conditions in a shared world where everyone experiences changes in time of day, weather and seasons together.
With over 450 cars from more than 100 licensed manufacturers, soon to include the C8 Corvette, Forza Horizon 4 features the largest and most diverse Horizon car roster yet with all the customization options Forza players love, like new Drift Suspension upgrades and driver personalization.
