Nadella's statement about the current co of Microsoft with OpenAI and the hiring of Altman and Brookman said:

“We remain committed to our partnership with OpenAI and are confident in our product roadmap, our ability to continue to innovate with everything we announced at Microsoft Ignite, and to continue to support our customers and partners.

Η Microsoft έχει επενδύσει 10 δισεκατομμύρια δολάρια στο OpenAI τα τελευταία δύο χρόνια και σχεδιάζει να συνεχίσει αυτή τη συνεργασία ακόμη και με την είσοδο του Altman στην εταιρεία.
