Microsoft’s Chief Product Officer Resigns from Xbox Team

Marc Whitten
Microsoft

One of the most pivotal figures in making Xbox a household name is stepping down from his duties at Microsoft.

Microsoft has announced on the Xbox Wire that Marc Whitten, the chief product officer of Xbox, will be leaving Microsoft in order to become the chief product officer for Sonos, an audio electronics company based in southern California. Whitten leaves behind over 14 years of service to the Xbox name. His most notable accolades include overseeing the revolutionary launch of the Xbox Live online service and the console launches for the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and original Xbox.

Whitten’s reins at Microsoft will be turned over to Terry Myerson, the current vice president of operating systems. Myerson oversees the teams for Xbox, Windows and the Windows Phone. Based on Whitten’s letter to the public, he has parted ways with Microsoft on good terms and still encourages fans to embrace their products.
