Microsoft to shake up Entertainment Group, J Allard and Robbie Bach out

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 6:38PM EST

It looks like Microsoft is doing a little spring cleaning in their beleaguered Entertainment Group, as a just announced corporate shake up aims to keep the Redmond company nimble enough to compete with Google and Apple in the mobile device and entertainment product spaces. The biggest moves see Chief Technology Officer of the Entertainment Group, J Allard — whose Courier project was recently axed — and Robbie Bach, the same groups President, leaving the company. Allard, who has been on sabbatical from Microsoft for quite some time, was in charge of several high profile projects — including the Zune and Xbox — will stay on as a consultant; Bach will be leaving the company completely. What say you? What changes/products would you like to see Microsoft’s Entertainment Group make?
