Topic: J Allard rumored to be coming back to Xbox.

Posts 1 to 3 of 3


Coming from this weeks windows weekly. His being in the Xbox one reveal video makes sense if this is true.

people familiar with Xbox history know that J. Allard was well liked and viewed by many as the “Father of the Xbox“. Last week All Things D reported that there’s a major Microsoft reorg in the works. It seems like J. Allard (if he’s willing) could easily take the helm of the Xbox One and help fix the E3 aftermath.

On Windows Weekly ep. 315 (at the 1:44:13 mark) Mary Jo Foley shared a rumor that J. Allard might be making a return to Microsoft.

A popular sentiment towards Microsoft and its approach to the Xbox One is that the company is disconnected, notwithstanding their recent policy changes. Gamertag Radio posted “An Open Letter to Don Mattrick” and attached interviews with old Xbox execs that exhibited the contrary; Microsoft seemed genuinely engaged with the community. After listening to Allard’s interviews, I get the feeling his enthusiasm and sincerity towards core gamers could be the change the Xbox One needs.

I hope this true. The Xbox division has been a mess since he, Peter Moore and Shane Kim left. I'm sure he would do some things that would make Xbox One a great product.



Am I the only one who thought of Jared Allen when I saw the thread title?
