I have only been here at E3 for less than an hour and I already got some pretty big breaking news for you Forza fans. After visiting the Forza exhibit I noticed that the Microsoft team was using a new wheel from Thrustmaster to demo Forza Motorsport 5 rather than a Fanatec wheel. I spoke with a Thrustmaster representative who was on site. He informed me that Thrustmaster has a partnership with Microsoft and will be the official wheel for Xbox One at launch.
However he could not confirm or deny if Thrustmaster will be the next official Forza wheel. It seems though that may be the case since the Forza team is using it to demo Forza Motorsport 5. This could be bad news for those who own Fanatec wheels and were hoping their units would be compatible with Forza 5. Stay tuned for more info as it develops!
