Microsoft’s Xbox Live policy and enforcement director Stephen Toulouse is to quit the firm after 18 years.
He resigns on February 15th “to explore other opportunities”.
Known as StepTo to many Xbox gamers, Toulouse (pictured) has for many years been the face of Xbox to much of its social networking community and primarily dealt with bans and suspensions for those who violated Xbox Live’s T&Cs.
“Over the past year I’ve been doing quite of bit of thinking. I turn 40 this year. Despite the wonderful ability in Microsoft to change careers pretty dramatically inside the company, I’ve been there nearly 18 years and it’s the only world I’ve really ever known. I feel too strangely comfortable, and too strangely tied," Toulouse said.
