Six months ago Microsoft hired former Steam director Jason Holtman to make Windows a great platform for gaming and interactive entertaiment, but now we hear that Holtman has already left the software giant.
No details are provided on why he left.
An official statement has been released by Microsoft confirming Holtman's LinkedIn Profile update; "We can confirm that Jason has left Microsoft and we're grateful for his time at the company. We wish him the best in his future endeavours," read the statement. Obviously that doesn't provide much enlightenment on any reasons for Holtman's departure.
We shall have to wait and see what this change means to Microsoft's Windows gaming plans. Unfortunately it's another ambiguity to add to the Games for Windows LIVE (G4WL) situation.
