Forza Motorsport 7 is already under development. And as revealed by Thomas Jackermeier, CEO of Fanatec who recently met with the Turn 10 team to discuss various news related to the support of flying in the next game in the series.
On the official forum of the company, Jackermeier has rallied the community: “If you would like to add something, please let me know. Please tell me any wheel/pedal/shifter related issues you have in FM6 and let us know what new features you would like to see supported in FM7.”
The CEO of Fanatec has also updated the users on the outcome: “I had a very good meeting with them and I am happy to report that there is a good chance that a lot of things will change for the better in upcoming FM titles. There is a new person who is responsible for physics and force feedback and this is a “wheel guy”. He is a real world racer with car engineering background and very familiar with PC simracing. The PC market seems very important for them and they are aware that this market is dominated by wheel users. Therefore we will intensify our co-operation and get the best out of the games for wheel users. I cannot confirm at this point what features can be implemented but the interest to do so is very high.”
At the time, Microsoft has not confirmed the existence of Forza Motorsport 7 but according to some rumors the game could get out at the launch of Project Scorpio, with a presentation scheduled for E3 2017. At the moment, it is only a rumor to be taken with necessary precautions.
