While I agree with the sentiment better (in this case earlier) communication would've been useful. People were waiting for ~50 minutes without any information.

Microsoft headquarters is in Redmond Washington. In the Pacific time zone. It is just after 11am there. So probably, what happened was, everybody went home on Friday, without making any kind of decision regarding what was happening, and no knowledge about how the situation was going to play out over the weekend. So the marketing and social media teams just went with what they already had planned or pre-approved, and didn't have any execs or managers on hand to approve any kind of formal statement until Monday morning. Which in their time zone was about 3 or 4 hours ago. By the time everybody gets into the office, has their morning briefings, decides what to do and how to handle it, and communicates that down to the marketing and social media groups.... well, you get the idea.

And Forza isn't the only brand I've seen do this. I follow a few properties that seemed to be going along with their normal routine all weekend, seemingly unaware anything was going on. And then Monday morning, a few hours into start of business, come out with an official statement.

Forza should not be siding with anyone. I'd rather it sticks to racing rather than supporting events that have nothing to do with Forza Horizon or racing.

About what? turning a racing forum into a political forum.

How about the forum sticking to FH4 related matters and not other things that have nothing to do with FH4.

I don't have to agree with you or these people rioting so don't tell me to have some decency.

I didn't bring it up in the first place sunshine.

Peregrine57 - I always thought they are streaming from UK -> hence it was always in the afternoon hours european time, so more suitable for Europeans.

Incog23, REX - I would like to talk about this, but I think we should stop this discussion here, before someone got blocked or banned.
I can only suggest to don't believe in everything you can see in media and social media.

So, instead of a stream, could we just get update notes as then we could save 30 minutes of our time? After all, if the update drops before the stream, there won't be a need to watch the stream - unless there's some interesting bug fixes

Exactly, that's what I was thinking.

I understand the need for the delay, but the update is knocking on the door already.
May the forced induction be with you.

Playground is in the UK, but they're either subsidiaries or outsources. Microsoft, and Turn 10 are in Redmond. So companies that are further East might not have had someone available with authority to speak for the franchise as a whole until the west coast starts waking up in the morning.

Absolutely agree. As a society and as a culture, we need to talk about this, but Forum rules are that we stay on topic. This is the time, but not the place. The discussion is being held elsewhere. We can find each other there.

Judging by what I’ve read before, I’m presuming why they needed to delay the stream is to give their employees a boost in making their opinions heard by a wider number of people and saying that they are against racism and injustice against black people?

It's a really terrible experience that the family has had to endure in America while I agree 100% we need to stick to the rules and regulations off the site and stick to topic so no one knows when is the update dropping then as off yet I'd expect hopefully tomorrow at latest

...
For now, I just acknowledge their decision, anyway, only thing I am expecting is that this update won't come with another 'super update' killing the game like were the car reset time, the track-tor ... Every time I am worried they could remove ghosting for corner bombing because some find it super fun ...
