Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella was recently interviewed at Code Conference, an annual technology conference where the biggest names in the industry gather to discuss everything “tech”.
During the interview, Satya Nadella commented on Xbox and reaffirmed its position within Microsoft. Nilay Patel, editor in chief at The Verge, posted the complete quote on Twitter. Nadella says during the interview that “Xbox was part of Microsoft but it was out on the side, and now it’s much more central, built on core cloud technologies”.
“Xbox was part of Microsoft but it was out on the side – and now it’s much more central,” built on core cloud technologies, says Nadella— nilay patel (@reckless) September 28, 2021
This quote stands to reaffirm what has already been stated previously by leadership at Microsoft; Xbox is a core pillar within their business. This has been proven with investment in cloud technology via Xbox game streaming, financial investment via acquisitions, and a commitment to growing Xbox Game Pass. If you weren’t convinced already, this latest quote by Satya Nadella is further proof that Microsoft is all in on gaming.
