A new person in that role might not be a bad thing, not to mention working on the same brand for 20 years would not really be all inspiring. Can't wait to see what he's up to.

Mike may have been the most successful executive within the Xbox division in the last decade. He’s done a lot of great work but most recent was being head of Game Pass...the only Xbox segment that knows how to message and who’s been killing it in term of product quality. It’s a loss for Xbox and Game Pass fans.

He went to Blizzard...he was great for the brand both behind the scenes and in the public eye. He spearheaded some great pro-consumer releases for the platform and was constantly engaging the public via Twitter and streaming sessions. He was a gamer first and played on all platforms. Good luck to him.
