After 18 years, Peter Moore is making his final goodbye’s to the games industry as he embarks on his next adventures as the CEO of Liverpool FC.
In a series of posts on his new updated Twitter account he wrote:
Today is my final day working in the video game industry… These are the words that I have dreaded writing for weeks now, following the announcement of my appointment as CEO of Liverpool FC. I am leaving behind thousands of great memories that comprise the career journey of a lifetime. From the advent of online gaming (albeit via a 56K modem) to the “console wars”, and now to games as 365 days a year, live experiences, I have been fortunate to have borne witness to the amazing growth of this, our wonderful gaming industry. During my days at Sega, Microsoft, and EA, I have worked with some of the smartest, creative, and innovative minds on this planet. Hundreds, if not thousands of whom I am honoured to call “friend” …
I shall miss everything about the industry each day henceforth.
