MS "Absolutely" Committed to PC Gaming (as Holtman Leaves)

Microsoft partner creative director Ken Lobb spoke with Rock, Paper, Shotgun at the D.I.C.E. Summit, unequivocally confirming Microsoft's commitment to PC gaming, something they have done repeatedly in the past, though their track record at delivering on that commitment is not very compelling. He explains that in the restructured Microsoft things are different, saying they "have more support internally to support PC more," asking our patience: "please let us continue to do that over a five-year period so we can have real impact." However, when asked about exclusives or upcoming PC game, he had to defer, saying "I canít make any announcements. But we are very dedicated to that space." He says they are "absolutely" committed to PC even if this new resolve of theirs runs into setbacks, and says they understand the bottom line: "The only way we can build trust in our community is by making great games." Oddly, one of RPS's questions invokes MS hiring former Valve employee Jason Holtman as their PC gaming honcho, but today Neowin reports Holtman has already parted ways with Microsoft after around six months with the company (thanks nin via Joystiq). This comes by way of his LinkedIn profile, so no other details about his departure are known at this time.
