EA has responded to requests from VG247 regarding the departure of Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey.

According to a spokesperson:

“I can confirm that they are exiting EA. It takes a team of talented people to make a highly-rated game like Dead Space. The team at Visceral are currently working on Dante’s Inferno, Dead Space Extraction and new titles to be announced at a later date.

“Production is uninterrupted on Dante’s Inferno and Dead Space Extraction. SVP Nick Earl continues to lead the Visceral Games Studio.”

So there ya have it. Confirmed.

Now we are awaiting word from Activison regarding what their positions with the newly formed studio entails.

Update: According to an email we received from an Activision spokesperson:

“Glen Schofield along with Michael Condrey will lead the studio which will be creating a new game based on one of Activision’s existing franchises.

“We will be providing more details regarding the game at a later date.”

No other details were forthcoming, other than Activision’s plans on continuing its revamp of proven titles which is not news, really.

    Still not impressed none of the Bond games have been good since Goldeneye and that was made by Rare.

    Didn’t like them especially Nightfire. BTW How is it Activision has the 007 series when its actually EA owns them?

    Edit: NVM guess Acti got it with Quantum of SOlace which was god awful…

    Activision now owns the rights to the Bond IP, EA lost them.

    They got it before Casino Royale was released.

    Oh, Christ no. Take talented people, put them to work on a dead-end piece of licensed tat.

    Talented?

    Glen was just the Executive producer just means he handled the money…. takes no talent especially with EA…

    Michael is just a policy handler, yeah real talent there…

    Actually, you’re completely right. When they said they’d worked on Dead Space I sort of presumed they’d done something worthwhile. :-D
