Most of you would know Kudo Tsunoda, and for a number of reasons among which the top of the list is being the General Manager of Microsoft Game Studios and being the creative director for Project Natal.

However, Microsoft has other plans for him right now. It looks like his expertise is now needed to push up the Windows Apps Studio where he has been moved to the post of a corporate vice president.

In his new role, Kudo Tsunoda is going to be working on a number of different products for Microsoft; a notable few would be Microsoft Edge, and more importantly Microsoft HoloLens. Here’s a statement issued by the company:

On the heels of the successful release of the November update for Windows 10 and the New Xbox One Experience, Microsoft added two new members to the Windows and Devices Group Leadership Team: Kudo Tsunoda as CVP Windows Apps Studio and Chuck Friedman as CVP Windows Shell Program Management. These changes will help Microsoft continue to deliver great experiences on Windows 10 and devices, including Xbox, Surface and HoloLens.

It has also been reported that Kudo Tsunoda is going to work on products to build better methods of interacting with users like gestures and voice.

Back at the Microsoft Game Studios he has been replaced by Hanno Lemke of Lionhead and Shannon Loftis, the GM of Microsoft Studios Publishing.
