Louis Castle, co-founder of EA’s Westwood Studios has left the firm for free-to-play games company InstantAction where he will act as CEO.
InstantAction specializes in third-party 3D browser-based games funded through advertising and micro-transactions.
Castle, who founded Westwood with Brett Sperry in 1985, became general manager of EA’s Blueprint Studios after Westwood was acquired by the publisher in 1998. It’s greatest success came from Command & Conquer series.

Brett Sperry, the Westwood co-founder behind such gems as Dune II and Command & Conquer, has formed a new studio in Jet Set Games.
The Las Vegas company is currently hard at work on games for iPhone, PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii, according to Big Download.
Other members of the original Westwood team have joined Sperry at the new firm.
Brett and the gang seem to be enjoying their new digs, if the announcement on the studio’s official website is any indication:
“Just like the Rat Pack, we live by three simple rules: work hard, play hard, and never run out of olives for our martinis.”
Dean Martin would have been so proud.
