Larry Hyrb (aka Major Nelson) Joins Midwest Games’ Board of Advisors
Midwest Games broke the news via Twitter that Larry Hryb formerly Major Nelson of Xbox is joining the team. Larry joins them as an advisor to their communications team. This is what Midest Games via Twitter said:
We are thrilled to announce Larry Hryb (@majornelson)
Joins Midwest Games as an Advisor to our Communications team! Larry has spent the last 20 years at Microsoft/Xbox and brings a wealth of knowledge of the games industry and communications. Welcome aboard Major Nelson!
Larry also posted a couple of Twitter responses to this announcement and he first said this:
I am excited to join @benkvalo and the team @midwestgamesco on their mission. I always love working with developers and nothing is more rewarding the helping smaller developers realize their gaming dreams.
Then to clarify Larry also added this:
Getting some DM’s and texts about my @midwestgamesco announce earlier: I am joining their board of advisors to help guide them. I have a few other advisor boards I am working with as well – so don’t be too surprised when you see me pop up on a few other boards.
Forbes did a more in-depth piece on the situation, but this is interesting. After over 20 years as one of the faces of Xbox, Larry decided to take a little break. Then out of nowhere, we get a cool announcement like this. It will be interesting to see how Larry helps out the team at Midwest Games as well as the other teams he might be a part of. As someone who has met Larry, he is a nice genuine person, so I look forward to seeing what else he can accomplish!
