Fans of Turn 10 Studios' Forza series should probably plan on taking a sick day in the near future.

Why? Because Forza Motorsport 6 is scheduled to be released in less than two weeks. 

Everything we've seen so far indicates this will be a dramatic leap forward for a franchise which has historically produced fantastic, race-themed rabbit-hole video games.

Not to mention the opportunity to drive the new Ford GT, McLaren P1, Pagani Zonda, and Audi R18 e-tron quattro Le Mans in anger.

Regardless of car or condition, players should definitely spring for a proper wheel and pedal setup. As we've said before, using something as crude as a standard controller to play a game this devoted to detail with seems criminal. 

Forza Motorsport 6 will be released Tuesday, September 15th, exclusively for Xbox.
