Same problem by me

it’s maybe due to the advent calendar car which is not reveals at this time

Same problem!

The bug was solved.

I tried to do an update via Microsoft Store, but there is no update…

Same over here, update is required to get into the forzathon shop but non available.

same here, they messed up probably

Same problem here, game wants me to update. But there is no update (forzathon shop only)

Same problem here. Same problem everywhere?


Winter is my favorite!!! I was waiting to see if anyone else got that message. I said to myself hmmmmm, they didnt mention anything about a new update. I am a little excited to see how crazy the PG games will be this week, with D class offroad cars. HAHAHA a whole lot of slow chases

Everybody had this bug, I guess they didn’t think about season changes between the calendar shop updates.

This would be most inconvenient were it to happen next week with the Supra…

Anyway, the bug is solved! Yay!

No apparent probs here regarding the update…
Had to swap out of the camrao and back into to get it recognized for the Weekly Forzathon

Nissan GTS-R '87 used for the Retro Sportscar champ - C600 Tune Shared

Trial and games done, going to be a good day

Glad to see, that i’m not the only one, having that issue.

Tried to search for updates manually and automatic - but no updates was found

Problem is solved by me, I have access to the forzathon shop :wink: and I did nothing just playedso it should be solved by everyone

hmmm little bit frustrating when there is only 8 hours left to grab it for today

The Bowler has been available since 4pm Pacific yesterday. The Forzathon Shop is still following the daily Free car pattern while changing the clothing offers with the weekly seasons.

2 hrs start to finish everything. Record time for me
