During the Xbox Daily livestream, Microsoft’s Xbox Division head Phil Spencer had words of praise to say about the work Turn 10 is doing on Forza Motorsport 7 and the Forza franchise.
Spencer mentioned that he feels that it’s hard to argue against Turn 10 being the best racing studio in the world at the moment, considering how they manage to deliver high quality games every single time.
“I think Turn 10, it’s hard to argue that they’re not the best racing studio on the planet right now. They just, time in and time out, [deliver] high quality games, great visuals…. the relationship with Porsche and being able to unveil the GT-2 RS… while it’s cool to be able to do that on stage, and the partnership with Porsche is gonna be important to this game, it’s also a testament to how car manufacturers view Turn 10, and how they take care of their brands.”
Spencer continued by mentioning that Porsche doing their world premiere of a car with Microsoft, and having the winner of the Forza championship on the podium at Le Mans, are a real testament to how car manufactures look at the gaming industry as a whole, including other franchises like Gran Turismo or Need for Speed.
According to Spencer, the gaming industry is an important part of how manufacturers reach their customers, and to see this kind of partnership and the high quality games coming out is “fantastic.”
Forza Motorsport 7 will release on October 3rd for Xbox One and Windows 10.
