Nick Grange will move to the American games developer as European PR director at the end of this month after almost six years at ­Microsoft.

Grange is credited with launching Mic­rosoft’s bestselling Xbox console back in 2001. He was also res­ponsible for introducing successful games franchises such as Halo to the ­media.

US-based Activision rec­ently broke records with the release of Guitar Hero III, which allows players to pretend to be rock stars.

Grange joins as Activision launches a new James Bond series, Tony Hawk games and further Guitar Hero titles.
