Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella joined an Xbox Academy workshop last week that focused on up and coming game developers across the UK. Nadella spoke about the importance of gaming to Microsoft and reaffirmed the companies commitment to Xbox. “It’s core to our DNA”, Nadella said in reference to gaming “what motivates us is how we bring more of the joy of gaming to the 3 billion people who play.”
This isn’t the first time Satya Nadella has thrown his support behind Xbox and their gaming endeavors. Nadella famously said that Microsoft is “all in on gaming” six months before the company committed 68.7 Billion dollars towards the acquisition of Activision-Blizzard, a record for Microsoft and the gaming industry.
Microsoft has shown their commitment to Xbox beyond words with their investment in acquisitions, Cloud, and Game Pass. It should be reassuring to all Xbox fans that the head of one of the largest companies in the world seems committed to growing Xbox and sees Microsoft as a big player in the gaming industry.
