Mattrick Reportedly Leaving Microsoft To Head Up Zynga [Update: Zynga Confirms]

Posted on Monday, July 1 @ 15:22:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


[Update] Zynga has confirmed that Don Mattrick will in fact take over as CEO of the company and sit on the Board of Directors starting July 8th.

"I joined Zynga because I believe that Mark's pioneering vision and mission to connect the world through games is just getting started," Mattrick explained. "Zynga is a great business that has yet to realize its full potential. I'm proud to partner with Mark to deliver high-quality, fun, social games wherever people want to play."

[Original] Microsoft Interactive Entertainment Business head, Don Mattrick, is reportedly leaving his position as the Xbox bossman to become the CEO of Zynga.

The news comes from All Things D, who claims multiple sources have indicated that Mattrick is in line for this new executive position following his departure from The Big M. If the reports prove to be true, this will cause a huge shakeup in the industry, as Microsoft's front man for Xbox will now be gone.

Do you think Microsoft will be better off without Mattrick, or will his absence be a major loss for the company? Could the Xbox One reveal disaster have something to do with his sudden departure from the company? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
