Indias Xbox 360 Boss Quits Microsoft
Anand has been with Microsoft for eight years during which time he has overseen the launch of the Xbox 360 in the region.
Although the respected executive has not yet revealed his new employer or position, he told GameGuru that he intends to stay in India and work in a similar gaming capacity.
"Whatever my next move is going to be, it is going to be within these spaces, which is technology."
"The convergence of technology, retail, entertainment, thats where I have specialised and built these skill sets and that is what I really intend to do," he said.
GameGuru noted that rumours have suggested Anand may be working with Nintendo to establish a presence for the Wii in India, but the exec would not be drawn on any speculation.
"Nintendo first of all hasnt made any announcements on entering the country."
"There are rumours and speculations floating around for that as well but all I will say is that right now I am not going to be making any formal announcements as to where I am headed," he said.
