Microsoft shuffles game development bosses

This isn’t a huge reorganization, but sometimes these changes happen in waves.

Chris Satchell, chief architect of the XNA games development group, has been promoted to chief technical officer of Microsoft’s Interactive Entertainment Business Group.

Taking Satchell’s place as XNA general manager is Boyd Multerer, who previously led work on the XNA Game Studio.

The news comes on the eve of Gamefest, a Microsoft conference for game developers in Seattle that opens Tuesday at the Washington State Trade and Convention Center.
