Xbox vet McCulloch lands role at EA Skate studio

The former head of Microsoft's Xbox Live platform Dan McCulloch has taken a new role at Electronic Arts.

Taking to Twitter (below), the 15-year Big M veteran has been hired as the general manager of EA's Skate studio.

The firm recently announced that it was making a brand new Skate title at its EA Play event in June of this year. The IP started life back in 2007, with two follow-ups launching in 2008 and 2010 respectively. Skate 3 saw a surge in popularity due to YouTube giant Pewdiepie playing the title, with EA having to reissue the title to meet demand.

McCulloch announced his departure from Microsoft at the end of June. During his time at the Big M, he worked on the Kinect peripheral as well as its HoloLens AR tech before heading up its Xbox Live platform from the end of 2017.
