Chief Design Officer Patrick Söderlund leaves Electronic Arts
This is rather surprising.
Electronic Arts' Chief Design Officer, Patrick Söderlund, is leaving the company he helped raise to new heights. Söderlund worked on technology like the versatile Frostbite engine which powers all of EA's experience nowadays. He was also the "face" of the company, appearing in several videos and E3 press conferences.
It's unclear why Söderlund left or what he plans to do in the future, but it'll be interesting to see where he ends up. Considering his expertise in the industry and how he's impacted EA over the years, Microsoft could hopefully scoop him up, given its plans to aggressively expand the company's gaming presence.
Andrew Wilson, the head of EA, issued the following message on EA's website.
We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more. We wish Söderlund the best of luck for the future.
