    Here's hoping for the Mark III Supra's return.

    "Moving ahead, you guys can expect cars from Toyota, Lexus, maybe even Scion, for years to come," said Brian Ekberg in the Forza Monthly broadcast.

    So, it does sound like Turn 10 and Toyota have come to a long-term licensing agreement. Good news!

    So suddenly Toyota decides to come back to other racing games. Seems to me like it was just because everyone was begging. I wonder what happened with their original statement/reason?

    Finally! I can finally rest at ease after this announcement. Welcome back Toyota! :tup: And THANK YOU PG for making this happen for us Forza players! :cheers:

    The support for this game is off the charts, and I am grateful for it! :D

    Bring on Toyota, Lexus and possibly Scion baby!!!

    My guess is GT had a 2 year deal which lasted until October obviously. One month of negotiating is about nowish, and another month of building hype and here we are.

    It's been stated elsewhere, but I'm guessing a timed exclusivity deal was the most likely reason.

    I'm ecstatic Toyota is making a return to Forza, hopefully it is a sign of things to come for other games in the genre. :tup:

    I didn't catch Forza Monthly and the stream is seemingly not up for replay yet... Any word on Toyota in FM7, or is that game still finished for good?

    The original statement...that got deleted? All signs point towards timed exclusivity.

    Didn't see anything anywhere but yeah, I also get the feeling they've shelved it for good.

    John Schommer of Turn 10 has responded to that question stating that there are no plans to introduce Toyota to previous Forza titles (those preceding Forza Horizon 4), reinforcing the studio's statement that development for Forza Motorsport 7 has ended.

    I hope this means NFS Heat gets Toyota as a dlc expansion pack.

    I already have my spotify playlist full of Eurobeat.

    Imagine the rage if they only included the Supra SZ with the 4-speed auto instead of the RZ. :D

    That would be like begging for a backlash just for giggles. Not happening.

    During Forza Monthly, Turn 10's Jon Knoles also reminded viewers that Toyota vehicles of Forza's past require some polish to bring them up to standard.

    This sounds promising that some of the fan favorites may return. No word yet on newer models.

    Surely the A90 will be there, which means widened tracks and aftermarket wheels, giving it an edge over the GT Sport version.

    Oooh, thank you. I wasn't able to go back in the Forza stream while I was writing the article; I've gone back now and amended the article accordingly :tup:

    Good news.

    And look...a developer that tells it's players what it is working on. What a novel idea.

    Good to see Toyota return. Really hoping to see the LC500 make its FH debut.

    I'm counting the days until this baby comes off the boat from Australia to terrorize the UK. :D

    I hope they bring the LFA back, 80s and 90s Celicas and the 2000GT would be perfect as well ;)
