Don Mattrick is Leaving Microsoft
After a storm of (mostly negative) press surrounding Microsoft and the Xbox One, All Things D is reporting that Don Mattrick is leaving Microsoft and heading to Zynga. Their sources are saying that head honcho of Microsoft’s Interactive Entertainment Business (a fancy way of saying XBox) is leaving the company for struggling indie game developer, Zynga.
What has been a very dramatic unveiling of the next generation console gaming for Microsoft has now taken a turn for the worst. If Xbox head, Matrrick, does in fact leave his company it does not bode well for the X1.
On one hand, this can’t be good for Microsoft’s new console but maybe a new leader could turn everything around for the better. What do you guys think?
UPDATE: Don Mattrick has officially been announced as Zynga’s CEO. Kotaku is reporting it here.
