Stephen Toulouse spent 18 years with Microsoft and was the Xbox Live security and community manager when you left in February of 2012. Well, not he's back with Microsoft.. sort of.
Stephen will be joining Black Tusk to work on the new Gears of War video game as director of community engagement. Stephen will be leaving his position at HBO Code Labs to join the Microsoft started gaming company. Stephen's already doing research as he's been lurking at some of the Gears of War forums for feedback.
Black Tusk does have more than Gears in the works, but Stephen's job seems to be only on the new Gears game.
