Reports claim Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey have left EA for Activision [Update]
Reports surfacing around the net are claiming that EA’s Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey have left Redwood Shores for positions at Activison’s new Bay Area studio.
According to sources close to Gamespot, Visceral Games employees were informed that general manager Glen Schofield and COO Michael Condrey were leaving to work at the as of yet unnamed studio.
Schofield was the man behind Dead Space, and was recently busy talking up Dante’s Inferno.
EA nor Activision have commented on the situation yet, but we have contacted both so hopefully one or the other will get back with us soon.
UPDATE: Kotaku has word from EA: “EA has been nurturing great developers for 27 years and making room for the next generation is an important part of that process,” said EA’s head of corporate communications, Jeff Brown. “It takes a team to make a great game like Deas Space and and there’s a stunning array of talent in the Visceral studio — creative leaders who now have the opportunity to step into the spotlight and have their talent recognized.”
Still, not much of a comment. We’re still waiting for one on this end.
