    The update is even smaller on my OGXB1, just 402.83mb.

    This update looks like a good bye.

    I think this is the first time in the history of the franchise for a cover car of a newer title to be added to an older title.

    There are quite some theories as to why you're right:

    • Since the McLaren Senna is the spotlight car, and given the fact that it is the cover car for Horizon 4 (kind of like the reverse of what they did with the Dodge Viper GTS with Motorsport 4 and the first Horizon), it might kind of signal that it would be the last content update, because that would mean that the McLaren Senna being in Motorsport 7 symbolizes "moving forward".
    • Almost every hidden car (Lamborghini Diablo GTR and TVR Cerbera Speed 12 included) and every Forza Edition (except those that are rewards from the Forza Drivers' Cup) can now be purchased, meaning that Forzathon would slowly lose support. However there are rumors of a possible Apollo Intensa Emozione coming to the game, or maybe it could be destined for Horizon 4.

    This won't be the last update to the game: ForzaRC hasn't even launched yet, nor has FRR come out of private testing.

    Not the last update but maybe the last update to add new cars? At this point I'd rather have more engine sound updates than new cars.

    They said that FM7 will be their priority for this year. Do you guys really think they will just focus on "fixing" the game? The picture of the Apollo is more than just speculation... if not, why on Earth would they put a random picture there?

    Not sure if they would have enough time to make FM8 since FM7 is still their priority this year. FM5 was rushed because they had to meet the deadline. Hope they won't repeat the mistake.

    Do you really believe that FM5 was a mistake? Come on... that game was... is still a great game. And I still think it has better sounds than FM7. But I prefer the latest for the amount of content.

    How is this the last update to a game that T10 had clearly said would continue to support? Not sure how some are jumping into that conclusion...

    I didn't say the game was a mistake. I was implying that they didn't give themselves enough time to make the game. FM5 looked impressive and the cars sounds were indeed very good. But the game also launched with too few cars and tracks and the offline mode wasn't that good either.

    They will support the game at least until Forza race regulation is finished and well received by the community.
    That's important so that it's ready and included in FM8 at release.
    I suppose they will also finish experimental drag and make sure drift is ok (maybe it already is)

    There might also be another Forza RC season (and various multiplayer/spectating improvements tied to that), who knows.

    I played the Senna in FM7 last night. I'm glad I purchased the Xbox and FM7 instead of only having PS4 and GT. While GT is more refined, FM7 gives us newest, hottest cars out there. thank you FM!

    If this was Real Racing 3 the Senna would cost at least $50 with upgrades
