Microsoft Trademarks “Forza Hub;” Probably Preparing to Open Franchise-Wide Stats Service

With the upcoming launch of Forza Horizon 2, looks like Microsoft is working on tying things together, at least if a new trademark filed for “Forza Hub” s any indication.

The trademark description is, for once, not very cryptic:

Entertainment services, namely, providing interactive, multiplayer game services for video games, namely, charting progress and accomplishments of users in a series of video games; providing information about video games; providing a web site featuring information in the field of video games; providing a web-based online portal in the field of video games.

While we can’t be sure until Microsoft announces it officially, it definitely sounds like a centralized hub for Forza games, providing information and aggregating players’ statistics and accomplishments from the various installments of the franchise.
