Microsoft announces that Peter Moore is leaving the company to move back to the San Francisco Bay Area to take on another opportunity outside of Microsoft.

Peter Moore will join EA to run the Sports game division. Interestingly the new Xbox and Microsoft Interactive Entertainment Business (IEB) boss is actually coming from EA. Don Mattrick (photo below), a former president at Electronic Arts Inc. is taking over Moore's position. Mattrick brings 23 years of games industry and development experience to the strong Microsoft management team, having helped bring to life such celebrated game franchises as the “Need for Speed,” “Harry Potter” and “The Sims” while at EA.

"Peter has contributed enormously to the games business since joining Microsoft in 2003 and we are sad to see him go," said Robbie Bach, president of Entertainment and Devices Division at Microsoft. :Since that time, he presided over the global launch of the Xbox 360™, spearheaded a revitalized and rebranded Games for Windows business, and helped steer the console’s ascent."
