This will be interesting to see what VW are in the game now since there haven't been any revealed as of yet. I hope for the VW Bus to still be in. For some odd reason your title of this thread reminded me of a David Guetta song lol which is completely random as heck lol.

Very suspicious indeed.

The 3 major car brands from previous Forza titles on XBox One that have been missing so far are Porsche, Volkswagen and Peugeot. They've been all 3 in FH2 and FM6. From all other big brands in those two games we have at least a few cars announced yet.

I certainly hope that we won't have to pay for Porsche AGAIN because that would be rediculous. Once in FH2 fine, once in FM6 was fine. But from now on it should be included in the base game or it would be seen as money grabbing. Either Turn 10 goes the money grabbing way and announce yet another Porsche expansion for a Forza game (yawn) or else they might do a Porsche garage reveal announcement close towards release date. Whatever way it will be, I cannot think that they would not have any Porsches in FH3.

Other VW group cars are in, like Audi, Lamborghini and Bentley.

Would be very, very, very surprised if there is no VW, particularly considering the hero car of FH3.

Peugeot and Porsche have been absent in some previous Forzas but VW has been present in every one as far as I know.

Volkswagen are probably trying to work out how not to suffocate the xbox with emissions before allowing the cars in.

I wouldn't be surprised if there was a "German Week" theme for one of these next reveals. There was one for FH2, or maybe it was FM6. Or both.

With that week could come all the VWs, perhaps most if not all. It does seem a little strange that not a single one was revealed though.

Porsche was spotted during the E3 gameplay by a forum-goer.....maybe a joint Porsche/VW reveal. Keeping in mind that even if Porsche wasn't in the game, no RUFs have been revealed either.

I'd really only worry about it maybe 2-3 weeks from launch if none have been revealed yet.

I think we can confirm that at least 2 VW are going to be in the game. From Xbox store preorder page:

ULTIMATE EDITION OWNERS WILL HAVE EARLY ACCESS TO THE GAME ON 9/23/16. PURCHASE THIS OFFER BEFORE 9/27/16 AND RECEIVE 2 CAR PACKS AT NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE: Forza Horizon 2 Rockstar Car Pack (Xbox One) and Forza Motorsport 6 Meguiar's Car Pack (Xbox One).

FH Rockstar Car Pack includes 2 VW:
2014 Beetle GRC
1970 VW Desert Dingo #1107 Baja Bug


Those packs you get for preorder arnt for FH3. The Rockstar Pack is for FH2 and the Meguiar's Pack is for FM6. So if you already have those packs for those games then its pretty much useless lol. The only one you get other than the ones from the car pass for FH3 is the All Stars pack which is just race cars which is going to be amazing.

"Starting today, you can choose from one of three versions for Forza Horizon 3, available to everyone. Note that players who purchase any digital bundle of Forza Horizon 3 on Xbox will also receive two car packs available immediately for use in previous Forza games– the Rockstar Energy Car Pack from Forza Horizon 2 and the Meguiar’s Car Pack from Forza Motorsport 6."

What's so "suspicious" about a list that is 2/3rd complete, and as yet, all the major manufacturers have yet to announce "Release Cars"

Meaning, those cars made available at release, but not all available for instant access.

Just like all previous Forza titles.

VW is tied to a huge number of marquee cars, see these cars tied to VW Motorgroup. These are subsidiaries of the Volkswagon Manufacturer Group. So why would you see it as suspicious that a major manurfacture of several leading car groups be excluded.
See the enclosed cars linked to Volkswagon

Volkswagen Group sells passenger cars under the Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Porsche, SEAT, Škoda and Volkswagen marques; motorcycles under the Ducati brand; and commercial vehicles under the marques MAN, Scania, Neoplan and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles. It is divided into two primary divisions, the Automotive Division and the Financial Services Division, and has approximately 340 subsidiary companies.[11] VW also has two major joint-ventures in China (FAW-Volkswagen and Shanghai Volkswagen). The company has operations in approximately 150 countries and operates 100 production facilities across 27 countries.

All the cars listed belong to the Volkswagon Group, and it's due to strict licencing with both Turn 10, Microsoft and Playground Games as to what cars, models and types of their entire vehicle lineup will be allowed into not only Horizon 3, but the next iteration of the Forza Motorsports franchise.

These licences can be very strict, allowing what we'd consider normal racing car game inmates, yet exclude one we'd think should/would be included. We all have no idea as to those rules, and we have to remember, the developers DO NOT have the power as to what appears, and what doesn't. It's down to what the manufacturers want included.

So, we'll definitely see VWs in Horizion, as there will hopefully be representation of the famed Baja Bugs (Beach Buggies) which were extremely popular here in Australia, plus the huge VW following in the great Aussie Isle.

I'd hazard to say we might find some as Barn Finds, as these were rather rare after the '80's.

So many cars are now tied into each other. Such as the great Toyota 86 and Subaru. The Famed 86 is the EXACT same car as the Subaru BRX, with the only difference being badging.

In fact right now, over 60k of the great 86's and lesser number BRXs are being recalled Australia wide due to an electrical fault on the power steering. Which could cause steering to fail due to an electrica short.

This concern has been in the VW small car and sports car lineup since 2005. It even happened to a friend when her 2005 Polo Turbo recently stopped dead in its tracks in the middle of an intersection. Scary stuff.

But I digress.

So many cars are linked, so rest assured that while some might be absent at the momnent, there will no doubt be appearances of dome of the various cars we love in Horizon 3. There's nothing suspicious about anything, it's just how things are being allowed in by manufacturers, not the developers. If it was up to them, they'd have everything included in their games.

These guys are doing their best to supply the best experience they can to you. It might not suit everyone, but the cost of including just one car is immense to say the least.

I'd kill for SEAT and Skoda to be added...still so confused why they have yet to be when both brands contain some fantastic cars and engines.

Who knows why it happens, we'll never really know. Who knows, perhaps that brand within the family of the automotive group.

These days, in such economically troubling times, many car companies have had to sell, buy-in or be acquired by larger global conglomerate companies in order to not only continue putting out cars, but to look after the family's that have their current vehicles across the globe.

Here in Australia, two of our BIGGEST employable companies, icons of our whole ethos as Australians, have CLOSED THEIR DOORS to locally produced cars.

Thousands of jobs lost, the lose of a range of high performance vehicle gone down the drain.all because the global market has hit hard here, more than the general public knows.

This is not isolated to just Australia, many British companies have gone to the European companies, many of the smaller car makes we love have been absorbed by the global car groups that are now in charge of multiple marquees of the racing world.

If that mongul doesn't wanting of its car groups to be in a game NOW, wherevit once appeared in multiple games, they have every right to do so.

It might not please us, it certainly wouldn't appease the game developer that used their vehicles before. The licencing department in the developers struggles to get everything they can into a game, especially if they used to have the car in it before.

So, we all have no idea why, or if it will change, or if some models will be included.

Let's just hope that the cars we'd love will eventually make it into the games we love?

It's up to the gods of global economy lol...
