Fanatic CEO Thomas Jackermeier went on the official Fanatic forums to accidentally reveal that Forza Motorsports 7 is in development. This comes after Jackermeier asked for fan feedback from Forza 6. Jackermeier said..
“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.”
