I'm sure it wasn't cheap but highly I doubt that it came at Class's expense. If Giants were in a position where they had to choose, the business decision is Deere hands down.

Adding brands & features does a few things for the product. It satisfies current players and attracts new players. Brands themselves are a big advertising tool. Yes, there are a lot of people who are fans of certain brands that are already playing. There is also a large, very large, group of people who are not playing. Seeing a particular brand logo on an item, in this case a game, is enough to convince some kids, parents of kids and other buyers to buy.

That said, each brand has it's own market size. In this instance, the Deere name is significant larger than Claas. In terms of revenue, 6.5 times larger. That's some serious brand power.

Overall, fans if FS seem pretty satisfied so far. The FS17 E3 Trailer received 35K likes overall and the FS19 E3 Trailer has already received 48K likes. Some of that is attributed to the growth of the franchise and popularity from FS15 to FS17 vs FS17 to FS19...but the response has been extremely positive. Positive enough that Giants deemed it necessary to make a reaction video.

The reaction video was great seeing all the bigger name youtubers from around the world and their reactions as the trailer progressed I kinda hope they keep doing it

Why would they announce one and not the other?
2 separate brands.

It would sustain the hype if they announced one at E3, then another at Farmcon, for example. It stretches the hype :)
So they told the people at Claas that they would be announced second and they were OK with that?
They told Claas we are going to show Deere in the US and Claas in Germany.
Its all about location.

That would be a neat trick...without a Claas license. Even with, Claas sales in Germany aren't that great. The last numbers I have seen (from 2014) show the top 5 brands (in terms of new tractor sales) in Germany are Deere, Fendt, Case IH/Steyer, Deutz-Fahr & New Holland...in that order. Claas is most prevalent in France (#4 behind Deere, New Holland, Massey Ferguson and barely ahead of Fendt), which makes sense because that where they are made (formerly Renault).
