Xbox research and design manager Chris Novak, who has worked at Microsoft for nearly 20 years, is leaving the company.

According to his LinkedIn, in his current role, which he has held for more than five years, he led user experience for things like Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Cloud Gaming and Xbox Live, reports The Verge.

At Microsoft, he also held the positions of Design Architect and Design Director.

“I loved my time with Xbox,” Novak said in a LinkedIn post.

“Creating end-to-end experiences for players is a privilege. There are very few things you can work on in life that evoke such passion in people around the world. I love listening to players and imagining this next moment of unexpected fun. The game is amazing. Xbox will always be with me,” Novak added.

Novak shared more about his career with the company in an interview with Polygon published Tuesday, which I recommend you read in full.

“Microsoft is where I learned in the crucible of gaming, from the best in the world in the industry,” Novak told Polygon.

“I have to see him in his best and his worst moments. And that learning process, I treasure that immensely,” Novak added.
