What do you think will be the next 2 cars which they teased which „will blow us away more than the car pack“?

Well, since Ford and Forza are on a roll with each other, my guess would be the 2018 Ford Mustang and the 1986 Ford Escort spotted in FM7 files and on leaked list of FH4 car files. I'm probably wrong though.

Didn't someone spot the '18 Mustang interior in a video on Dubai's track? I'd say you're guess is probably close.

I'm so hyped about this one.

991.2 GT3RS is also in.

That strange Forzavista graphics glitch somehow made it into this build. Fingers crossed it will be fixed before the July 10th release. :crazy:

Not the version of the 917 I'd choose, but the new GT3 RS is very a nice addition.

I'm glad to hear that they're committed to redeeming themselves with FM7. Whether they completely can is another matter. Does it rule out FM8 for 2019? Not sure, but I wouldn't mind if these guys slowed down the new game release cycles, and possibly reinvent their concept beyond FH4.

They literally just said FM8 isn't in development.

Yes, but who knows how fast they could slap it together should they decide to make it. But yeah, I don't think they will in the foreseeable future. Over time I kind of want to see the two Forza franchises melt together in a way we cannot fully imagine.

I'm guessing that slapping games together is not something they are going to do any more. If it were, they'd be hard at work on FM8 right now. The fact that they aren't tells me they are giving the Motorsport franchise a good hard look and trying to find a way to relaunch it and make it relevant again.

Here's a crazy conspiracy theory. T10 has hired a third party to make a new motorcycle game that comes out in 2019. Then you get a three year development cycle for all three games. Motorsport 8 in 2020, Horizon 5 in 2021, Unnamed Motorcycle Game 2 in 2022, repeat.

I think they are gonna skip next year and make it launch title for the next gen console on holiday 2020. Full dynamic seasons and tod, 900 cars, 35 tracks, VR and more. Thats why i think they need more time than the usually 2 year cycle.

The Exocet is in Forza Specials, already a useless car.

Considering what a mess the track toys division is, I'm fine with that. It seems more of a time trial beast anyways.

Hah, there's already people whining in the comments and making wishlists. :lol:
Okay, I have to ask; what would the point be to adding the Mclaren 675LT? There's literally not much of a significant difference over the 650S in the game. I'm asking as I still see people asking for that car.

Asking why have the 675LT over the 720S would be a better question, I feel. In terms of "what would be the point", moderately better performance, and more aggressive styling. The rear, if I remember correctly, is almost entirely new, as are some aero bits around the rest of the car.

I'm not saying the people bellyaching over the 675 want it for those exacxt reasons, but I certainly would. Have a nice comparison drive between the two, etc. :lol:

Nice pack, but I would probably have liked it more if lightweight open-wheelers were my thing. The two Porsche freebies are more than adequate "compensation" though.

To be fair, I'm reading more positive YouTube comments than usual.

I have been wondering the same, but I guess it comes down to the modern supercar crowd always being fairly loud, and the fact that other popular high performance cars in the game already come in two variants.

It's not super high on my list, but I would like to see the 675LT, more so in Motorsport than Horizon. I always enjoy testing two similar cars to get an idea of how they're different: the Cayman S and GT4 is a good example.

The 675LT's absence is also strange given T10's propensity for top-tier models. It's like the SLS AMG never getting the Black model.

That is also quite true, the 720S being in the new update just makes the 675LT seem a bit more pointless now.

Those comments are also quite true. I do find it odd when Turn 10 was happy with having 2 Ferrari 458s and 3 Aston Martin Vantages.
I mean, I wouldn't mind if they added the 675LT of course as I enjoy having the option of multiple car trims. I am just in no immediate hurry for having one when there's still plenty of more unique cars out there.

Whaaa!? Forza getting the good stuff again? Always keeping that grass fresh huh T10? Keep 👍 I missed the stream but hearing the reactions of many here, things are going to get even better from here!
I have no problem with that, actually. If that's the route they choose, all I'd like is some updates here and there to FM7 in between, even when FH4 has the spot light.
Same. Been wanting T10 to do this for so long, because it will be a great start if they do. Plus it will be a smart move too since PC2 and GTS aren't going anywhere for awhile. If their devs can keep updating their games so can Turn 10 with Forza 7.

Oh, and hurray for locked cars being unlocked! Finally!
