Update (8:19 AM IST, 24th October): Phil Spencer responds to Mike’s new endeavour.

Mike Ybarra served at Microsoft for around 20 years before parting from the company on 10 October. The former Microsoft’s corporate VP of gaming worked on the Xbox, Xbox 360, and Xbox One with great involvement in the Xbox Insider Program. Today, Mike announced he’s joining Blizzard as executive vice president and GM.

“We will work with all our energy to serve gamers with incredible content and experiences,” Mike writes in his tweet. “I can’t wait to be part of this team.” As clear from the tweet, Mike will be attending Blizzcon this year.
