Eurogamer‘s reporting that Codemasters Guildford general manager Adrian Bolton has left the studio.

The developer is currently working on shooter Bodycount.

Bolton is the second big name to leave the studio in recent months after Bodycount creator and swearmaster Stuart Black left last month, as revealed to VG247 in July.

EG is also reporting that the OTT shooter is now down for an early summer release. It’s been underground since E3, but will apparently be shown to press before christmas.

There’s more at the link above.

Bodycount, being built from Codies UGO engine, will have you killing baddies known as “Targets” on behalf of the “Network”. The game will also contain online multiplayer and co-op modes.

It’ll be out on PS3 and 360.

    Releasing into the middle of Bulletstorm and Killzone 3 was always going to be commercial suicide. This absolutely needs to be announced during a quiet spell, and yes, the amount of talent walking away from the game is sounding off many an alarm bell.

    Yeah. That trailer was terrible. Looked PS2.5 at best. Hopefully they can pull something out of their ass with this one, as I did enjoy Black.
