A number of players have been suspended from Xbox Live since the launch of Forza Motorsport 4, and several have publicly claimed their innocence – and it appears that in at least some cases, it was true.
The bans were intended for players who had been using a pirated copy of the game – there’s no confirmation whether the bans also applied to players found to be cheating or whether there was any crossover between the two. A statement made on the official Forza forums states:
Turn 10 has been investigating claims from a select group of Forza 4 players who believe they have been unfairly banned. Additional inspection has revealed some accounts may have been banned in error. We are in the process of reinstating impacted accounts and apologize to those loyal fans that may have been inconvenienced. At Turn 10, security and the protection of our player base from cheaters has been and will continue to be of paramount importance.
