Watch Dogs designer CV suggests exit for EA Gothenburg

By Brenna Hillier, Wednesday, 6 March 2013 00:30 GMT

Former EA staffer Jamie Keen appears to have returned to the mega-publisher, despite having held a pretty sweet gig as lead designer on Ubisoft’s much-anticipated Watch Dogs.

Keen’s publicly accessible LinkedIn profile shows his current position as a gameplay producer as Ghost Games, otherwise known as EA Gothenburg.

His role as lead game designer on Watch Dogs and Far Cry 3 has been updated to display as a past position ending in February 2013.

Keen’s move is a little surprising, but perhaps as Watch Dogs moves into final production and polishing his contributions have wound down, It’s also worth noting that he spent nine years with EA before joining Ubisoft, including three years at DICE in Stockholm; perhaps he wanted to return to Sweden and reconnect with former colleagues.

EA Gothenburg is believed to be working on a new Frostbite powered game, presumably the next Need for Speed.
