Thats a shame, thats the only person i really liked at EA. He always felt excited whenever he talked about Dead Space in his interviews and i liked how he connected with fans during Dead Space 2 development. I really wish him he best of luck.

Its really sad to hear especially after he said he was getting along very well wtih Amy Hennig.

I read somewhere that he got replaced by an EA Execs Son. So much for that.. and there isn't even a good reason for him to leave after being executive producer on BF which was obviously forced on them.

He will probably end up at Activision back with Schofield.

If it's a deal where he doesn't like EA's involvement in his projects, then he won't be any better off at Sledgehammer. They've been with Activision for six years and still haven't made the 3rd person COD they joined up for.

I wish gamers would stop buying EA products. It seems the more brazen this company gets the higher their profit margin rises.

I will stop buying EA products... after Star Wars Battlefront!

And that there is the reason why EA can keep doing that they do.

You're Steve, run for your life.

I read that as run slave, instead of Steve. Which sadly he was probably treated as. Best of luck to him and his new adventure.

Why? Did the game sell poorly?

tigertron1748d ago

He probably didn't want Visceral to make a BF and was no doubt forced by EA.

Ya now I hope he can make a Dead Space "like" game again.

He was breath of fresh air on EA last generation, betting on new and darker IP's like Dead Space and Dante's Inferno.
I really wish he goes somewhere where they give him the freedom for his creativity to flourish.
