Forza 2 confirmed for May

It’s been delayed (sort of), anticipated, and hell, they even made a wireless force feedback wheel to support it and now, at last, Forza Motorsport 2 gets a release date — well, a release month. According to a press release that hit virtual mailboxes today, Forza 2 is confirmed for a May 2007 release.

But wait … there’s more! Not only did the folks behind Forza 2 decide to give us a release month, but they also got somewhat detailed with a few aspects of the game. Take a look at what they had to say about the tracks:

As you can see, 8 of these 12 tracks (or environments as we refer to them) are real-world locales — and as such, feature all the authentic real-life ribbon configurations of the tracks. Fans of Suzuka Circuit know that the track has 3 ribbons: The full Grand Prix course, the West course (used for MotoGP events), and the East course with the famous esses (and where I hear they held a NASCAR race in the ’80s). All told, there are 47 different ribbons in the game across the 12 environments.
