Phil Harrison will leave Microsoft, the firm has confirmed.
The former Sony exec joined Microsoft as European Corporate VP of Xbox in 2012, and was in charge of studios including Rare and Lionhead. That role now falls to Kudo Tsunoda.
“Following a successful tenure as Corporate Vice President in Xbox in Europe, Phil Harrison has chosen to pursue business interests outside of Microsoft,” said head of Xbox Phil Spencer.
“Phil has been a distinguished leader for our European Xbox team – overseeing production at our award-winning European studios and making a substantial contribution to the Xbox business globally. I want to thank Phil for his creativity and leadership over the past three years. Phil is a great friend of mine and I wish him the very best with his future endeavours.”
