Former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson will not be returning for Forza Motorsport 6, but his co-hosts will, the game’s developer has confirmed.

Speaking to IGN, content director John Wendl said: “Top Gear still very much is a part of [Forza] Motorsport. We have Stig’s Digital Cousin, we have the Top Gear Test Track, we have Top Gear inspired events in the game, and we actually have Richard [Hammond] and James [May] continuing to do voiceover in the game as well.”

Wendl continued: “But that’s actually led us to some new approaches to our career mode which we call Stories of Motorsport. Our new career has over 70 hours of gameplay and we’ve kinda doubled-down on that; we’ve brought in voices and personalities from racing and automotive entertainment to come in and really expand the career.

“You move through and you experience these things called Showcase Events that may take you back to a pre-war era Formula cars or something like that, or classic muscle cars.”

Jeremy Clarkson previously featured in Forza Motorsport 4 and Forza Motorsport 5. The 55-year-old was dropped from Top Gear in March this year following a physical attack on one of the show’s producers.

Forza Motorsport 6 will launch on Friday, September 15th, 2015.
