Have you been longing for a Forza Motorsport controller of Xbox to anticipate the widely-hyped game’s release? If so, you’re in for some good news.

As shared by leaker @IdleSloth84_ and French publication Dealabs, the new controller will reportedly be called ‘Stormcloud Vapor.’ The controller is believed to be a limited edition Forza Motorsport controller, as it is scheduled to be released just a few weeks before the game’s launch on October 10, 2023. However, there is no confirmation of this yet from Xbox’s camp.

The Stormcloud Vapor controller will be codenamed “Jemez” and be priced at €69.99 in Europe and $69.99 in the United States – subject to change. It is also unclear whether the controller will have haptic feedback like the PlayStation DualSense controller. 

However, some elements in the leak raise questions, such as the price difference compared to the Forza Horizon 5 controller, which could indicate a different theme altogether.

If you may remember, when Microsoft previewed the hotly-anticipated Xbox exclusive utopian triple-A game, Starfield, the Redmond-based tech giant also rolled out a limited edition controller with its theme. Sporting a neat white and futuristic design, bronze metallic D-pad, custom button mapping, and side and back two-tone grips, the controller was priced at $79.99 at that time. 

Forza Motorsport is Microsoft’s upcoming game for Windows and Xbox Series S/X platforms. Set to be released on October 10 this year, Forza Motorsport is the eighth installment of the franchise, it’ll serve as a reboot for the titular sub-series instead.
