Don’t ask a question if you don’t want the answer, son.
Porsche is %99 likely to NOT be in FH2. If Porsche is gonna be in FH2, I guarantee you T10/PG/IGN will announce it before launch. No point in making a thread asking a question when a definitive answer is not possible…
ok, here’s the thing, Porsche was a one time thing on Forza 4, and is exclusive for EA’s Need For Speed games, so the only game Porsche will ever be in after Forza 4’s Porsche Expansion is every Need For Speed game after it, just forget about Porsches anyways, they all look the same pretty much, if you’re gonna get any type of porsche then its gonna be RUF lol
God please help us! We need to have a Porsche in FH2.
There is always a chance to have a Porsche Pack in Horizon 2. T10 knows that a lot of people will buy this pack even if it’s more expensive than the other ones (I know that the question is how much EA will ask to let T10 to add it). Anyway if the game is good and has good reviews I will buy it even without Porsche but I would be extremely happy if they add a Porsche Pack.
And ok maybe all the Porsches are the same but at the same time they are unique. Handling, sound and quality is exceptional.
What bothers me is the number of you I will have to ban and moderate later because you’ve worked yourselves up into a frenzy over your own unfounded speculation. Left alone, you guys will run rampant with this sort of nonsense until you’ve convinced others it is somehow true and when the release of the game ends up disappointing the expectations you’ve given them, we have mayhem on the forums.
You know it is exceedingly unlikely that Porsche will return to the Forza series in the near future and you know why. Winding yourselves up over it serves no one any good purpose at all.
It can be bothersome because “I want Porsche” hidden in the form of a question or “RUF isn’t Porsche” or “[company] is evil” derails substantive discussion on how business and this industry actually works and why these things happen. And then you have the conversation turning into complete speculation which in turn spreads into rumors and a month later you have new players coming in claiming T10 said this and that and accusations of lying. That’s bad for the community.
The real reason (that I heard of) Porsche is in non of the big racing games / sims is because EA has the exclusive license to use Porsche vehicles in their games (last few NFS games always had them.) When Forza 3 came out that deal wasn’t made yet, but at the time Forza 4 came out the license went to EA. Turn10 then paid EA a large amount of money to get a ‘one-off license’ to put Porsche in Forza 4 as DLC. They could do that again i’m sure, but this just makes Porsche very very expensive to get in the game compared to let’s say ferrari or Lamborghini. (EA pay’s a lot for exclusive license, T10 then pay’s even more to get it back.)
The difference this time, that I can see, is that EA might not come with a NFS title this year. That might give other developers the chance to maybe get the the Porsche license for a cheaper price since EA doesn’t need it anymore. But that’s only maybe…
