Lead Developers Abandon EA's Ship


Recommended Posts




Abandoning the EA ship
Electronic Arts is comprised of a variety of studios, many acquired over the years. Recently, prominent figures in four different EA studios have left the company, creating a concerning case of brain drain for EA. Last year, after the bungled launch of SimCity, three top developers from Maxis left EA to start their own indie studio. Criterion Games, the EA studio responsible for the Need for Speed and Burnout series, lost its leaders a few weeks ago to the desire to start a new studio. Soon after, PopCap lost key executives for the same reason. And most recently, the founders of Chillingo, the studio responsible for publishing the original Angry Birds game, have left the company.
