Bach looks to the future

Long-term Microsoft loyalist and outgoing Entertainment and Devices Division president Robbie Bach has spoken out on his shock retirement from the Xbox 360 platform holder.

“At Microsoft, I’ve been so fortunate to spend more than two decades of my life working with incredible people and doing amazing things like launching Office, Xbox and Xbox Live, the ‘Halo’ franchise, Windows Phones, Zune and more,” Back said in Microsoft’s official statement on the departure.

“I’m at the time in my life where I want to dedicate more time to my family and my non-profit work, including my work with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

“I have the utmost confidence in Steve, Don and Andy and their ability to see through our mission of bringing extraordinary entertainment and mobility experiences to life for people around the world.”

Microsoft has also confirmed the departure of J Allard.
