Microsoft has released an official apology for Microsoft Studios creative director Adam Orth’s controversial ‘always-online’ Twitter debate yesterday.
“We apologize for the inappropriate comments made by an employee on Twitter yesterday.” The statement reads. “This person is not a spokesperson for Microsoft, and his personal views do not reflect the customer centric approach we take to our products or how we would communicate directly with our loyal consumers. We are very sorry if this offended anyone, however we have not made any announcements about our product roadmap, and have no further comment on this matter.”
When told about Adam Orth’s comments via a Twitter message from user @LynnDawson, Microsoft’s Chief of Staff for Interactive Entertainment Business, Aaron Greenberg, simply responded “Very sorry if you were offended, I don’t actually know who he is.”
