In an announcement shared to his social media accounts on Friday, Hryb thanked fans and colleagues and said he looked forward to the “next chapter” of his career.
“After 20 incredible years, I have decided to take a step back and work on the next chapter of my career,” he wrote. “As I take a moment and think about all we have done together, I want to thank the millions of gamers around the world who have included me as part of their lives.
“Also, thanks to Xbox team members for trusting me to have a direct dialogue with our customers. The future is bright for Xbox and as a gamer, I am excited to see the evolution.”
Hryb confirmed that Xbox’s official podcast would be taking a hiatus and return at a later date. He’s yet to confirm what his next career move will be.
