Report: Microsoft has closed Pioneer Square studio

Microsoft has closed a research studio in Pioneer Square, CNET reported Thursday.

The studio in Seattle’s historic neighborhood located across the lake from Microsoft’s Redmond headquarters was supposed to develop new products for Microsoft. J Allard, one of the champions of the Xbox and Xbox Live, worked at the studio and left Microsoft last year.

Microsoft did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Here is the report by CNET’s Jay Greene.
