Today, Patrick Söderlund, a longtime executive of Electonic Arts, has left the company. As the former CEO of DICE prior to EA’s acquisition in 2006 the executive climbed the ranks to become the Executive Vice President of EA Worldwide before being promoted to Chief Design Officer of EA.

Söderlund will remain at his post for the next 3 months before stepping down, giving him ample time to find a replacement. In a memo CEO Andrew Wilson commented on Söderlund’s departure:

Today we are announcing that Patrick Söderlund has made the decision to move on from EA.  After nearly two decades as a pioneer for our company and industry, he will begin a new chapter later this year.

Wilson went on to confirm other changes to EA such as SEED Team led by Johan Andersson will join EA’s studio team to work on technology not related to Frostbyte.

EA originals and EA Partners teams, led by Rob Letts, will merge with Strategic Growth and Zynga’s head of Experience Design, Jason Wozencroft, will help develop EA Games and services. So a lot is happening at EA but only time will tell if it’ll pay off.
