EA has announced that its Chief Design Officer Patrick Söderlund is moving on from the company. Söderlund is most widely known for his time as DICE CEO, where he was involved with the creation of the Frostbite Engine.
The news comes via a press release posted by EA, written by EA CEO Andrew Wilson. It reveals that Söderlund will transition from the company over the next three months, and that he will “begin a new chapter later this year”.
The post goes on to highlight the work that Patrick Söderlund did for EA over the years, including his work as head of Worldwide Studios and for his most recent role as Chief Design Director. It offers a look at what the future holds for the company, including how the management structure will change in the coming months:
A few teams will move within our organization with this change. The SEED team led by Johan Andersson will join our studios group to continue driving advanced design and innovation at the leading edge of games. We’re deepening our focus on user experience, and welcoming Jason Wozencroft to our studios to lead a strong, unified UX approach for our games and services. And with new games and content playing a vital role in our networked future, the EA Originals and EA Partners teams led by Rob Letts will join our Strategic Growth group.
It has yet to be confirmed where Söderlund is heading off to next, though we’ll be sure to keep you updated when we know more.
