Former Sony man Phil Harrison joins Microsoft

Ex-Sony Worldwide Studios boss joins Microsoft

Microsoft has confirmed that they have secured the services of former Sony man Phil Harrison to head up their European division of Microsoft Studios.

The appointment is conveniently timed as the Lionhead founder and MGS Europe boss Peter Molyneux has announced his departure from Microsoft upon the release of Fable: The Journey.

Harrison ran Sony Worldwide Studios from formation in 2005 to 2008 when he left to run the short-lived Atari publishing revival.

Microsoft has stated that Harrison's appointment bears no relation to Molyneux's departure.
