元器件交易网讯 7月3日消息，微软Xbox项目的负责人唐·马特里克(Don Mattrick )离职，担任游戏公司 Zynga的CEO。据美国财经杂志《快公司》（《Fast Company》）分析唐·马特里克突然离职也许并不是在Xbox上的失误，可能与微软即将重组有更大的关系。
之前Xbox One 24小时须联机验证一次的设计引发人们的不满，马特里克回应让那些不具备网络条件的用户玩Xbox 360，这让很多人颇感不爽。在索尼发布399美元的PS4之后，他被迫以499美元的价格标签来保护其操作平台。
前Windows负责人史蒂文·辛诺夫斯基（Steven Sinofsky)的突然离开之后，微软并没有任命马特里克为其后继者，与此前不同，现在微软CEO鲍尔默直接接管Xbox的业务。《快公司》猜测他们将任命史宾瑟（Phil Spencer）替代马特里克的职位。（元器件交易网董蕾 编译）
Don Mattrick, the former Microsoft executive who oversaw the Xbox business, has taken over as Zynga CEO in a rapid move just weeks after the Xbox One unveiling and E3. His surprising and sudden exit may not have been a result of recent Xbox blunders, but more to do with Microsoft"s upcoming reorg. Fast Company has profiled Mattrick, and notes that his exit was reportedly spurred by a Microsoft reorganization that would have seen him taking charge of a newly created hardware pision. Mattrick is said to have wanted a bigger role within Microsoft, and his decision to look for a gaming CEO job would appear to back that up.
Fast Company depicts Mattrick as a visionary who was able to turn the Xbox business around. Described as an autocratic boss, Mattrick is said to lack patience for people who don"t deliver, and scares employees to ship games on time. In recent weeks Mattrick has been struggling to deliver the Xbox One message alongside his fellow executives. His decision to recommend the Xbox 360 to those without an internet connection for the Xbox One offended gamers, and he was forced to defend the console"s $499 price tag after Sony announced its $399 pricing for the PlayStation 4.
BALLMER TAKES CHARGE JUST MONTHS BEFORE XBOX ONE
It"s clearly been a challenging few weeks for all involved with Xbox, resulting in a U-turn on policies around used games and a 24-hour internet check in. Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is now taking direct control over the Xbox business, just four months before the company is due to ship its next-generation Xbox One console. Unlike former Windows chief Steven Sinofsky"s sudden departure, Microsoft has not named a temporary or immediate successor to Mattrick. Fast Company speculates that the company may look to Phil Spencer, head of Microsoft Studios, as a replacement to Mattrick. The choice will likely depend on the direction that Microsoft is taking with its rumored reorg, a change that is said to be imminent.
