Microsoft has told Edge that it is still committed to PC gaming after appointing Ron Pessner as its Game for Windows head after Chris Early was laid off earlier this week.

“Moving ahead, Microsoft will continue to invest in Windows as a first-class gaming platform through great Windows out of box experiences, our online gaming services including Games for Windows – Live, MSN Games, and Messenger games, and through new games for Windows developed by Microsoft Games Studios,” said the firm.

“Working closely with Ron [Pessner] will be Dave Luehmann, a long time Microsoft games veteran and general manager within Microsoft Games Studios, who will now be overseeing internal development and publishing for all Windows-based games.”
