Founding members Microsoft and Nvidia depart PC Gaming Alliance

PC Gaming Alliance president Matt Ployhar has confirmed that two its founding members, Microsoft and Nvidia, have left the non-profit organization.

According to Ployhar, speaking with BigDowload, the departures shouldn't affect the PCGA as the organization is moving forward with plans to "assist game developers, publishers and hardware companies," in making better PC titles.

"Another key thing we'll be doing is creating a more technical based advisory board that you'll all be hearing more about very soon," said Ployhar. "We're doing this to flesh out the PCGA's technical expertise while simultaneously addressing perceived gaps in membership."

Formed in 2008, the PCGA's mission was to help with marketing PC games, provide marketing research, combat piracy, and to help firms develop business models outside of retail and to also: "help make certain that the PC game industry had a public voice and a pulpit for accurately communicating the size, growth and overall popularity of the single largest gaming platform worldwide."

Ployhar could not comment on the reason Microsoft and Nvidia left the non-profit, stating he would prefer the companies communicated the reason instead.
