So it is returning to its roots but is completely different. Lol.

They are going the GT Sport route. More emphasis on motorsport, much longer races, etc. I will laugh if drafting is still absent.
i thought drafting was in Motorsport/horizon, since it pops up on screen, no?

Regarding drafting for FM8:

"Other improvements being worked on for the next Forza Motorsport game include drafting, which is being developed by a new racing fundamentals team who are building its core AI and physics, and currently have a new tire model up and running internally with real wear and tear, along with a ton of new suspension changes. Esaki noted that whilst the current implementation of drafting in Forza Motorsport 7 is “fairly realistic,” since it’s based on several data sources, it doesn’t make enough of an impact during races. He said it needs to be “a hyper real type of scenario for there to be a lot of mix up in passing and racing.” For the next installment, Turn 10 is aiming to introduce a number of drafting settings so players can tweak and dial it to deliver the racing experience they desire.

Draft settings is bad. It should be a constant & consistent aspect of the experience.

Could Sumo Studios return to handle the XO version where Turn 10 focuses on the SX? It’s. It like anyone cried foul when Sumo did with horizon 2.
