Adam Orth Will Now Have To “Deal With” Unemployment
It’s been less than a week since Microsoft Studios director Adam Orth took to Twitter to defend a feature that has yet to make an appearance on any console. Orth started a little war over Twitter with his comments about “always-online” consoles, saying that gamers just have to “deal with it”.
The tweets quickly escalated as Orth resorted to mocking people who replied negatively to the tweets, most of which make up Microsoft’s consumers. Microsoft then apologised the next day, asking any offended consumers to forgive comments made by Orth. Funnily enough, they also side stepped the real issue entirely, failing to confirm or deny always-online rumours about the next Xbox.

But that’s not important today. What’s important today is the fact that Adam Orth no longer has a job. According to Polygon, who confirmed the news with two different sources, Adam Orth has resigned from Microsoft entirely. It’s unclear yet if this was voluntary or one of those “so listen, you can quit this week or get fired next week” type deals.
Microsoft and Orth have yet to comment, but it seems like Adam Orth will now have to “deal with” unemployment.
