Xbox CPO Marc Whitten Leaves for Wireless Audio Firm
Posted on Monday, March 17 @ 17:54:15 Eastern by Daniel Bischoff
March Whitten, Chief Product Officer of Xbox at Microsoft, will now be known as the former Chief Product Officer of Xbox at Microsoft, trading that title for the same position at wireless audio firm Sonos.
Despite "the launch of Xbox One, the most successful launch in Xbox history, and the recent launch of Titanfall, the most anticipated game of this generation," Whitten can't resist the world of HiFi audio systems.
Microsoft announced the change by recapping Marc's role in developing and launching their home console:
"I have had the extreme pleasure over the last 14 years to work on the greatest product with the greatest team and for the greatest community," Whitten said. "Xbox is so special because of the amazing team I've had the opportunity to work with and because our fans are the most incredible fans on the planet. It has been the highlight of my career to work on a product so loved."
It's not clear whether a replacement will be found for Whitten, but the team at Xbox notes that you can still send him messages via his gamertag "notwen".
