Urgh...it's like Anakin Skywalker abandoning Obi Wan and joining the Sith Lord

The guy just lost his soul. I hope EA isn't poaching.

@Root

Don't be silly. Anakin would never do that. Obi would own him :-) :-) :-)

You do not know the power of the dark side.....or how deep their wallets can really go.

Anakin went on to complete his destiny, destroying the Sith Lord.

EA was a "hero" for a short stint in 2008 when they actually released new IPs, and they won't always be the bad guy. Things switch hands a lot in the video game world.

Eh, I've never gone for that. Luke is definitely the hero.

Money talks, or at least I'm hoping that's the case otherwise it will reflect extremely poorly on Watch Dogs.

ea is where the big money is. it is just a logical step for people to want to be where microtransactions will be in every game they will publish. do the math.

if you're thinking, developpers are there to provide a cool hobby for you - think again.

Hmm...don't know what to make of this news.

It's never a good sign for a Lead Designer to leave during game development.

Still i hope Watch Dogs delivers. The industry needs more open world games.

the game have been in development for 4 years now. it would be different if he had gone in that first year. I think the game maybe finished and its in a polishing phase right now.. also maybe they are working on the ps4 version.
