Last month, Xbox revealed a company reshuffle with multiple executives moving into new roles. One of these individuals was Matt Booty, who is now 'President of Game Content and Studios' overseeing Bethesda and leaving behind his old role as Xbox Game Studios head.
If you're wondering who is replacing this role, it's now been confirmed. Microsoft has appointed Alan Hartman as the new Head of Xbox Game Studios. If you're not familiar with Hartman, he's been part of Forza Motorsport team at Turn 10 Studios since 2005.
Over the past couple of years he's led as Corporate Vice President of Forza and Fable, and before this was the Forza Studio Head at Turn 10. Here's what he had to say in a brief message on LinkedIn:
"Thrilled to be representing such an elite set of game creators in my new role leading Xbox Game Studios!"
Booty, as previously revealed, will now oversee projects at Bethesda and ZeniMax. Sarah Bond has also moved into a new role and is now the President of Xbox - looking after both the hardware and software teams within the gaming division. And Phil Spencer, of course, will continue to oversee everyone as Microsoft Gaming CEO.
