Microsoft 'Forzavista' Trademark Hints at New Forza Motorsport Title

Microsoft has trademarked Forzavista, pointing not only to an upgrade of the Autovista feature found in Forza Motorsport 4, but also presumably to a new Forza Motorsport title.
The trademark listing for Forzavista says "a feature of interactive video game software which allows players to obtain statistical information of internal and external features of a vehicle and to virtually navigate and operate those vehicles."
Forza Motorsport 4 had a feature called Autovista, in which players could walk around cars unlocked via challenges and listen to a narrated description of various car parts.
In that version of the feature you could get in the car and start the engine. In Forzavista it sounds like you’ll be able to do a little more, thanks to the “operate those vehicles” description.
All of that’s rather interesting then, but perhaps the most notable thing is that it suggests we’ve got a new Forza Motorsport game on the way. And guess what? There’s a new Xbox being announced tomorrow.
Expect more then.
