    Is it me or is the time between the two games really short in terms of development time?

    Yeah i was really surprised when they said forza 4 will be out Fall 2011.

    Havnt had forza 3 that long, id rather wait a long time to have all the latest cars, its only been like 2 years since the last one.

    It's only the same time as between the other Forza games.
    I suppose the real test will be how much it's advanced.
    Lets face it we've all had GT5 and that didn't seem worthy of it's 4 year dev time so if it's an improvement on that or even FM3 then 2 years is fine....... In theory.

    I think FM5 will have more dev time as imo this will be the last Forza game of this gen of console.

    With FM3 they already were on the edge of what is possible on the xbox360 i think. FM4 to me sounds more like an extra release to promote that kinect thing.

    Hopefully I am wrong. We'll just have to wait and see I guess :)

    Yeah you could be right Bram. Although from one of the interviews with Dan Greenawalt he's said that the introduction of Kinect has allowed them to make advances in the way they make the graphics etc so it may have free'd up some disk space. Also im sure I heard somewhere that the engine now uses a new tyre and physics model.
    Don't quote me on that though I could be wrong..... I usually am lol.

    Yes they have been working on a new tyre model in partnership with Pirelli.

    I think the time between F3 and F4 is about right. Remember this ain't a two man crew working an rfactor mod. With the partnership with Pirelli it will blow right by GT5. Forza 5 will then come out on the new Xbox.
