The engineer who led development on Xbox Live and the XNA game development tools for Xbox, Boyd Multerer, left the company this month after 17 years at Microsoft. Multerer announced his departure from the Xbox team on Twitter today.

“Goodbye Microsoft. It was a good run. Xbox was Great! Time to do something new,” Multerer tweeted.

Multerer joined Microsoft in 1997, according to his Linkedin profile. In 2000, Multerer was hired to lead development on the online component of the original Xbox, which was called Xbox Online at the time. Multerer was responsible for hiring the Xbox Live development team and led the design, direction and implementation of Microsoft’s online gaming service. He was the first person on Xbox Live, he has said, and emphasized security and anti-cheating measures.

Later, Multerer would go on to be product manager on XNA in order to meet “the pent-up demand of independent game developers” and build “the first open marketplace on a console.”

Most recently, Multerer served as director of development for Xbox. He was part of the Xbox One team and oversaw technical design and development of the current generation console. Multerer promoted the Xbox One‘s cloud-based computing power at the system’s unveiling last year.
