Microsoft fans should know Phil Spencer, former Vice President of Microsoft Studios. Those same fans should also know that Phil Spencer is a passionate man, and one that truly believes in the Xbox and its continuous development. Perhaps that’s why he’s now the head of Microsoft’s Xbox division, twisting and turning the knobs behind the Microsoft Studios curtain.
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella issued an email to employees, stating that “Phil will lead the Xbox, Xbox Live, Xbox Music and Xbox Video teams, and Microsoft Studios.”
“Combining all our software, gaming and content assets across the Xbox team under a single leader and aligning with the OSG team will help ensure we continue to do great work across the Xbox business, and bring more of the magic of Xbox to all form factors, including tablets, PCs and phones.”
