According to this Newsweek piece, long-time dev boss Neil Young is to leave EA.

During his 11 years at EA, the Brit captained such projects as the ahead-of-its-time alternate reality game Majestic and the well-received licensed game The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. Following that, Young was put in charge of Maxis during the production of Sims 2 before being promoted to vice president and general manager of EA Los Angeles, where he supervised Medal of Honor Airborne and Boom Blox. Young latest project was heading up EA Blueprint.

No idea where he’s going. More through the link.

    Ugh, I used to be in a band that did Neil Young covers…

    Perhaps he’s gone to work on the new Harvest Moon game.

    Someone just shoot me now.
