Riccitiello's Left EA: Why You Shouldn't Be Surprised

Don't worry this is not another news post but an opinion piece of the whole shady situation. “Oh no! The head of one of the globe’s biggest games companies has left his job!? I don’t believe it!” many have recently said with a pinch of irony.

Did you say the above, either out-loud or in your head? Shame on you. This whole thing’s been a long time coming. Don’t go thinking this puts EA in a tricky situation either. They’re more than happy to say goodbye. Here’s why.Let’s get an idea of who Mr Riccitiello is, or was. The CEO of EA, John Riccitiello was the head of the entire company and the face of EA’s successes as well as its failures. Riccitiello bore the brunt of what has been a difficult time for the games industry, with EA proving itself to be just as susceptible to these changes in consumer consumption. (Culture, EA, John Riccitiello)

EA hires people who are clueless when it comes to gaming..It's like mega publishers don't even try to understand the kind of software that gamers want to be created/play..EA had so many good studios and franchises that they killed all for nothing....
