  • Microsoft Creative Director Departs After ‘Always On’ Controversy

    Microsoft Studios creative director Adam Orth is no longer with the company following last week’s “deal with it” comments. The news comes via Polygon, who confirmed with two sources that Orth has departed.

    According to Game Informer, Orth resigned, though it’s currently unconfirmed “whether this was a voluntary or forced resignation.”

    Last week, Orth posted a series of tweets in response to rumors that Microsoft’s next console will require a constant internet connection. At the time, Orth told followers to “deal with it” and noted that “I don't get the drama around having an 'always-on' console. Every device is now 'always-on.’”

    A day later, Microsoft commented “we apologize for the inappropriate comments made by an employee on Twitter yesterday. This person is not a spokesperson for Microsoft, and his personal views do not reflect the customer centric approach we take to our products or how we would communicate directly with our loyal consumers.”
