Former Xbox Live director of enforcement, Stephen Toulouse, has taken a role with Gears of War developer Black Tusk Studios, as director of community engagement.
"I don't know a console gamer who doesn't remember that incredible introduction to the world of Gears of War," said Toulouse in a blog post. "I was hooked. I was sold. That was a day one purchase for me.”
"Since then Gears of War is the only title I have played every release through in coop, with my friend Mark. We'll put off playing the game until we can set aside a week to play it together. I've played multiplayer, and done the entire 50 waves of Horde mode for charity with my friend.
"So when the outstanding team at Black Tusk asked me to help them make the best Gears of War experience to date by representing the community and being their advocate, how could I say no?
As part of his new role, Toulouse will observe community feedback and filter it through to the development team.
"I don't just want us to make the best next generation Gears of War game ever,” said Toulouse. “I want to make sure that everyone playing the game today feels just as good today and down the road in their investment into our amazing world as we do. There's a Gears nation out there. I'm a part of it and it's amazing."
