Peter Moore's return to the game industry has picked up steam. The longtime industry veteran and, for the last handful of years, CEO of the Liverpool Football Club has announced he is joining game engine maker Unity as SVP and GM of its Sports & Live Entertainment team.
Moore has a long history with the game industry, having previously served as president of Sega of America, CVP of Microsoft's Interactive Entertainment Business arm, as well as as head of EA Sports and, later on, COO at Electronic Arts.
