He also commented on the upcoming racing game Forza Motorsport 6 where he said:
"Stay tuned on that one. There will be lots of Forza news to come, and Turn 10 in particular is good at communicating with the community when they have stuff to talk about."
"From what I've seen, no one is gonna be disappointed about that game."
Greenberg took a bit bolder step forward and listed the game as one coming this Holiday season and confirming what many thought would be the case. The game will feature the new Ford GT aswell and the developers will not be taking the game lightly. Earlier in the announcement when the Ford GT was mentioned, Turn 10 Creative Director Dan Greenawalt said:
"The Ford GT in 2005, was the car that our team used to actually come up with new ideas for the gaming space, with Autovista, which is a mode in which you can use Kinect, motion tracking to move around the car, open up the door, get inside, and it was getting a new generation into cars."
"But now, this moment, Ford Performance, the new Ford GT, as a person who loves cars, I could not be more proud. I could not be more excited."
Well this sets it up very good for the release of the new game and as a gamer, I'm very excited to see how Xbox matches the level set by the recent PS4 Driveclub release.
