Looks like a few more people at Team Xbox got some positive attention this week! Both Xbox’s Sarah Bond and Arkane’s Dinga Bakaba have been recognized by VentureBeat as part of the GamesBeat Summit show for 2022†
Sarah Bond received the ‘Visionary Award’ for her work at Xbox, and here’s what one of the judges had to say about Bond’s performance:
“Sarah Bond has continuously moved through the gaming industry with purpose and vision. She has developed a gaming experience that is as advanced as it is diverse. Her contributions to Xbox allow us to see the future of gaming reflected in mentorship and leadership.”
Glowing words there from VentureBeat, and we congratulate Bond on her award too! Meanwhile, Arkane’s Dinga Bakaba has been awarded the “Up and Comer Award,” and here’s what the judge said about that particular honor:
“Dinga Bakaba has made an impression in gaming and there is no denying that he will be in this space for a long time to come creating immersive games. Dinga helps tell incredible stories and has now moved into charge of Arkane Lyon as the studio/co- director.”
Again, we here at Pure Xbox would like to congratulate Bakaba on this award for his work at Arkane Lyon. Oh, and we’re pretty excited to put Arkane’s latest game into practice when it comes to Xbox!
Sure, you’ve seen the title, we’re not the only ones to congratulate the couple. Xbox boss Phil Spencer has taken to Twitter to congratulate his colleagues on their latest achievements.
Feel free to join in the congratulations below!
