Madden NFL executive producer exits EA Sports

Friday, 17th June 2011 06:32 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Madden NFL executive producer Phil Frazier has farewelled EA Sports after 14 years.

“We appreciate Phil’s 14 years of work on the Madden franchise and recognize he was looking for a new opportunity,” EA Sports told Kotaku.

“Our team is changing to tackle new opportunities and we’re confident in the new organizational structure and leadership we have in place.”

Roy Harvey, executive producer of EA Tiburon stablemate NCAA Football, is said to be taking over Frazier’s role.

This is the second high profile departure from the franchise in the course of a few months, with creative director Ian Cummings announcing his departure in April.

Rumours suggest EA Tiburon has lost a number of other Madden developers, and a new studio, Row Sham Bow, has sprung up nearby, apparently founded by an ex-Tiburon staffer.

    Michael Vick looks kind too light skinned in that screen shot there…either that or its just the quality on my phone…

    On another random side note, I went to college with #72 that’s chasing him down, Stephen Bowen, 3-4 defensive end for the Cowboys…

    I think this has been a long time coming. He’s not the first to leave, and he definitely won’t be the last. The Madden franchise has been run into the ground in a way that the anti-CoD crowd can really only dream of.

    Hopefully Row Sham Bow is going to bring a bit of quality back into the game.
