Ouya co-founder and product development expert Muffi Ghadiali has resigned from the company. TechCrunch reports that Ghadiali’s decision to leave Ouya was his own, not the company’s.
“Ouya is focusing more on the next phase of the business and product development. We’ve made some recent changes including the departure of Muffi Ghadiali who was invaluable during the launch of Ouya. As is to be expected, Ouya is an ever-changing business, and as we continue to grow our needs shift accordingly.”
Ghadiali is considered to be instrumental in launching Ouya as a serious consumer product. Ghadiali has previously worked at HP, Synaptics and Amazon’s Lab126, which created the Kindle.
