Battlefield senior product manager jumps ship for Call of Duty team

Friday, 17th May 2013 10:25 GMT By Dave Cook

Battlefield’s UK senior product manager Kevin Flynn has taken up a new role as senior brand manager for the Call of Duty franchise. Yeah it’s a slow news day, bear with us peeps.

MCV reports that Flynn held the Battlefield post for two years before making the switch. Previously he was product manager at EA for three years, and before that he spent eight years as product manager at Vivendi Games.

Presumably he’s now working on Call of Duty: Ghosts. Speaking of which, here’s a gallery of new posters for Infinity Ward’s next shooter.

    Gone to the better game, then! (jk. I don’t care…)

    I wonder if CoD is still going to be the top game, next gen.

    Last gen it was all about beating Halo, but then along came CoD4, this gen.

    It’ll be interesting to see if any of these new MMOFPSs can become the next big thing…

    “Yeah it’s a slow news day, bear with us peeps.”

    Is there any need for that? The guy might be chuffed to have been mentioned on VG. Seems harsh to undermine it by suggesting his appointment wasn’t important enough to mention.

    If it’s not news worthy, don’t post it. If it is, stand by it.

    @2 I wouldn’t take too much offense to what Dave said.

    @3 I don’t take offense to it, I just feel bad for the young guy who got a promotion.

    …wait.

    The man in question is a Brand Manager i.e. PR, marketing etc. Hence the relevance to gamers is minimal and Dave’s comment about slow news day. Simply acknowledging the fact this wouldn’t have got a mention mid E3 for example.

    Please refer to the bit where I was suggesting the story was not useful.

    Can’t find it? I wonder why that is…

    I don’t know. I seem to remember a pretty popular community manager at IW that got plenty of coverage on game sites. He was nothing to do with game development, whatever his latter titles suggested.

    What ever happened to Bowling anyway?

    ‘If it’s not news worthy, don’t post it. If it is, stand by it.’

    Agreed.

    Bowling went off and set up his own studio.
