LOS ANGELES — Ford’s Henry Ford III and Turn 10’s Dan Greenawalt appeared onstage this morning just behind a Ford GT that came down from the ceiling during Microsoft’s press event this morning to announce that the Ford GT would be the cover car of Forza Motorsport 6.

The first numbered Xbox One racer from Microsoft’s Turn 10 Studios comes after much anticipation, following last year’s Xbox One release of spin-off Forza Horizon 2. Today, the publisher confirmed it for a Sept. 15 release on Xbox One.

Forza Motorsport 6 will run at 1080p resolution and will feature damage modeling and full customization of its over 450 unique cars. Players will race in 26 locations around the world. Competitive play will be available online as well as in a two-player split-screen mode.
