One of Microsoft’s key executives, J Allard, will deliver the keynote address at the upcoming Game Developers Conference in March. The keynote, entitled “The Future of Games: Unlocking the Opportunity”, is slated to discuss the importance of moving the gaming industry forward and taking advantage of new technology, not just for games but for the development of games as well.
“GDC’s motto has always been that the game industry starts with the game creators,” said Jamil Moledina, director, Game Developers Conference. “We are honored to have a visionary like Mr. Allard share his knowledge and thoughts on the industry’s future at the GDC, where the entire development community will be all ears.”
Seeing as how Microsoft chairman Bill Gates didn’t give any hints of the next Xbox at CES this month, many are speculating that Allard will dish out some info on the Xbox Next at GDC or further elaborate on the XNA development tools. MyGamer will have more on this leading up to the GDC, so be sure to check back for updates.
