Taking to X, Altman said that he had decided to join Microsoft on Sunday evening and it was clear that it was the best path for him and the team. With the new board and with Satya’s support, he is looking forward to returning to OpenAI and building a strong partnership with Microsoft.

"I love OpenAI, and everything I’ve done over the past few days has been in service of keeping this team and its mission together," he added.

Replying to Altman's post, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said he is "encouraged by the changes to the OpenAI board".
