Kudo Tsunoda Leaves Xbox Group, Joins Microsoft’s Windows App Studio
To work on services like HoloLens and Microsoft Edge.
Former creative director for Kinect Kudo Tsunoda has departed from the Xbox group and is now working with the Windows App Studio to further the development of apps across the company’s different devices and services (including HoloLens and Microsoft Edge).
An unnamed Microsoft rep told GameSpot that, “On the heels of the successful release of the November update for Windows 10 and the New Xbox One Experience, Microsoft added two new members to the Windows and Devices Group Leadership Team.
“Kudo Tsunoda [joins] as CVP Windows Apps Studio and Chuck Friedman as CVP Windows Shell Program Management. These changes will help Microsoft continue to deliver great experiences on Windows 10 and devices, including Xbox, Surface and HoloLens.”
It should be interesting to see what this means, especially considering the company’s de-emphasis on Kinect, so stay tuned for more information and in the meantime, let us know what you think in the comments below.
