Microsoft boss Satya Nadella has committed to Xbox and pledged to grow the gaming brand’s fan base.

In May Nadella countered the suggestion from investors and analysts that its Xbox division should be sold.

At the Code Conference Nadella was asked, directly, whether he would spin off Xbox. His answer: “I have no intent to do anything different on Xbox than we are doing today.”

His comments followed those made by Microsoft founder Bill Gates, who had said in an interview that he would “absolutely” support Nadella if he wanted to spin off Xbox.
