Xbox games on windows

I am interested in buying Forza MS 7 for Windows 10. I see that it is cross platform (xbox/ windows)  Do you need to own an xbox in order to play it on windows as well?  This is a stupid question I am aware but I'd rather ask than waste money.

As far as I know they are two seperate platforms. You need the PC version to play on Windows, an Xbox version to play on the XBox console. They are not interchangable.

No, you don't need an Xbox in order to play it on Windows. But if you get it digitally via the windows store, then you'll actually be able to play it on both Windows AND Xbox if you ever happen to get one.

Thank you so much. It worked perfectly. I haven't used anything other than steam or origin so i wasn't sure.
