Former 'X-Play' host Adam Sessler leaves Revision3

Adam Sessler, a longtime host of programming including X-Play on G4, TechTV and ZDTV, has left his most recent role at Revision3 as editor-in-chief and executive producer of games content after one and a half years.

Sessler confirmed his departure in a post on Tumblr, hinting that his career in the industry will continue on behind the scenes.

"After some incredible achievements over the last year and a half, I am announcing my departure from Rev3 Games and Discovery Digital Networks," he wrote. "Sixteen years in front of the camera covering the videogame industry has brought me to a point where I am ready and desiring to explore new opportunities. While I would never say no to doing one more review, interview or opinion piece, the time feels right to explore new avenues inside of gaming that help further the medium.

"The audience, my wonderful and talented co-workers and the last year at Rev3 Games will forever be appreciated for what was accomplished. There never is a right time to part ways with something that has become as natural as breathing, but things do end and now feels right."

According to Sessler's Twitter profile, the former presenter is now president of TheoryHead Inc., a consultance firm for entertainment and media.

Sessler was hired by Revision3 in November 2012 after leaving games network G4 after a 14-year tenure as editor-in-chief. At the time, Sessler said he was reached out to by Revision3 senior vice president of programming and production Ryan Vance following his departure from G4. Sessler would go on to lead the existing team of video game commentators at the games channel, including The Destructoid Show hosts Max Scoville and Tara Long and New Challenger host Anthony Carboni.
