Microsoft Entertainment Executive Departs Due to New Direction
Filed under: XBOX ONE, MICROSOFT

Blair Westlake, the now former corporate vice president of Microsoft's Media and Entertainment Group, has left the company due to its new direction with entertainment.

In an interview with Variety, Westlake offered the following explanation:

It has become clear to me that the organization is moving in a direction that does not fit either my expertise or my skill sets.

Over the last few months Microsoft has been undergoing a large-scale reorganization. During that period, I have had the privilege of working with numerous talented and professional people. While I will miss their company and our interaction, I truly believe that this move is in the best interest of all parties concerned.

I wish he had clarified what about the direction made him realize it was time for him to go, but it's still interesting to see that yet another executive has left Micrsoft since the release of the Xbox One.

So, he was let go because he couldnt adapt to whatever shite theyre planning next. In my opinion, when it comes to microsoft, anything got to do with a new direction is good. Sorry, good is a strong word. When i say good i mean something like "a guy trying to improve the smell of his shits"
