Epic Games Director of Worldwide Marketing Kendall Boyd has left the company to take on a similar role at Microsoft.

Microsoft confirmed the move to GamesIndustry International, which reported that Boyd will be managing the marketing of Microsoft’s Halo.

“We can confirm that Kendall Boyd has joined Microsoft Studios as Director of Halo Global Marketing,” a Microsoft representative told GamesIndustry International. “We’re thrilled to welcome him into the Halo fold, but have no other details to share at this time.”

A spokesperson for Cary-based Epic acknowledged Boyd’s move but said the company has nothing to announcing about the marketing position.

Boyd worked at Epic for three years. He oversaw the marketing of Unreal Engine and brands such as Gears of War and Infinity Blade. He also managed the marketing relationships between Epic and other including Microsoft, Electronic Arts and Apple. Boyd came to Epic from EA Sports.

Boyd’s move to Microsoft follows several prominent departures from the company, including design director Cliff Bleszinski, president Mike Caps and Gears of War producer Rod Fergusson.
