Xbox Live Founder Leaves Microsoft After 18 Years
Boyd Multerer, the founder of Xbox Live has announced on his official Twitter page that he is leaving Microsoft after being employed for over 18 years. While the company had some issues with the recent DDOS attacks from Lizard Squad, we’re sure that this is in no way or form related to this.
Goodbye Microsoft. It was a good run. Xbox was Great! Time to do something new.

The reason behind his departure from the company is unknown for now, but we wish him well and we hope to see his work again in the gaming industry. His role in the development of Xbox Live was huge, and it will be quite hard for the company to replace him. Remember when playing on Xbox Live, that he was one of the pillars of its construction.
