Xbox Creative Director Leaves Microsoft After ‘Always Online’ Controversy

Xbox Creative Director Tweets

Microsoft creative director Adam Orth tweeted his opinion about the controversies about Xbox vNext requiring always on internet connection to function. After he tweeted that, a person replied to his tweet about the SimCity debacle and Adam replied him that just like electricity internet may not be available for some time. In the continued conversation it was reported that Adam insulted the other person who was believed to be a Xbox customer which you read in the image above.

Now, Gameinformer reports that Adam Orth no longer works at Microsoft,

Game Informer has learned from sources close to the matter that Orth is no longer with Microsoft. A call to Microsoft’s main switchboard confirmed this fact. Our sources, who wish to remain anonymous, suggest that Orth resigned in the wake of last week’s events. We haven’t been able to confirm whether this was a voluntary or forced resignation.

Microsoft sent the following statement to the media regarding his comments to some person on the internet,

“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.  We are very sorry if this offended anyone, however we have not made any announcements about our product roadmap, and have no further comment on this matter.”
