Forza Motorsport 8 will not have the Spectate Mode and AI competitors at launch. As Chris has explained, the players are going to have a featured Multiplayer event which doesn’t align with having Spectate Mode. And having AI competitors can affect the gameplay in terms of safety rating. Apart from these, he also mentioned the absence of the Split screen feature – “Our heavy investment in pushing our new graphical features and our complete overhaul of the rendering engine made split screen really difficult to implement…”

Anyway, Forza Motorsport 8 is coming up with a bunch of new features which will cover the absence of features like – Splits Screen, Spectate Mode, and AI. The players are going to have 100 brand new vehicles which are able to 20 types of constantly changing environments, 800 unique upgrades, and a fully customizable single-player career mode.
