Turn 10, the Microsoft owned development studio responsible for the Forza Motorsport series, has announced it plans to expand over the coming year.

"... to celebrate in the only possible way befitting of our success, Turn 10 will be looking to grow its operations considerably in 2008 and beyond," said Turn 10 community manager Che Chou.

Exactly why the studio is expanding is unknown, but Chou does go on to reveal, "we figured now would be a good time to give everyone a heads-up that Turn 10 is hiring for our next big thing".

With Bizarre Creations now a studio owned by Activision, could Turn 10 be hiring in order to cope with the development of both the Forza and Project Gotham franchises?

Do you think Turn 10 would do a good job with PGR5 or do you have your sights set on another developer to take over the hit franchise? Let us know in the comments section below.
