Former Nintendo Manager Joins Xbox As Forza's 'Director Of Quality'

We're not sure we'd ever say Forza lacks in the quality department, but clearly, Microsoft sees room for improvement. Redmond-based Turn 10 Studios has made a major hire this month, as a former Nintendo manager joins the team as the franchise's Director Of Quality.

That means that new hire, Heather Gearreald, will oversee both Forza Motorsport and Forza Horizon, presumably making sure any future release is up to snuff regarding overall quality levels.

This sounds like pretty good news to us! If Nintendo is known for one thing, that'd be high-quality first party titles, and if some of that quality is now coming over to Xbox Game Studios, it seems like a win-win.

Gearreald spent almost five years with Nintendo at various management levels, so this is an exciting time for the future of the Forza franchise. Let's hope that the upcoming Forza Motorsport reboot is a high-quality release all round!

What do you want to see from the next five years of Forza? Let us know down in the comments!
