Thrustmaster confirm driving wheel for Forza 5 launch

After Mad Catz recently delayed their force-feedback driving wheel until after Christmas, there was a time where we believed that the Xbox One will be launching without a driving wheel. With only 3 days to go now, there may have been some panic amongst driving fan gamers.

The concern comes after it was announced (in a driving wheel reveal with Larry Hyrb) that the Xbox One will only support very specifically designed wheels, excluding the Xbox 360 driving wheels. Whereas PlayStation 4 will support PlayStation 4 wheels and eventually, PlayStation 3 wheels after a future update.

The wheel will also be upgradeable with different parts, including an F1 racing wheel, T3PA Pedal set, TH8A gear shiffter and additional ‘different’ wheels. These parts are supposedly being released at some point after launch.

So far, there are three driving games arriving on the launch of the Xbox One: Forza Motorsport 5, Need for Speed: Rivals and LocoCycle. We’ll have to wait until 22nd November to find out if all these titles are compatible. Will Carmageddon Reincarnation, the re-make of a retro classic also be compatible when it’s (possibly, not 100% confirmed) released next year?
