This was revealed on the Forza website where according to Turn 10’s Alan Hartman, “While we’ve never charged money for prize crates in Forza Motorsport 7, their presence in the game has continued to be a source of controversy. The overwhelming feedback has been that this system feels out of place in the game. After careful consideration, we have decided to completely remove prize crates from Forza Motorsport 7.”
He adds, “Similarly, paid tokens – which were a part of previous Forza games – will not be coming to Forza Motorsport 7 or Forza Horizon 4.” Hartman also notes that due to the complexity of removing prize crates from the game, it will not be done immediately and that they expect it to be completely phased out come winter.
In the meantime Turn 10 will be remove cars from priza crates in the game, thus keeping it purely about the cosmetics which means that there will be no advantages to being able to open more prize crates compared to other players.
