Kotaku’s reporting that Josh Larson, CNET’s VP of games, will be leaving after some “restructuring”.

While never officially implicated for the firing of Gamespot’s Jeff Gerstmann last year in the now infamous – and nuclear – Gerstmanngate Kane & Lynch review scandal, insiders have made it clear that Larson was responsible for blurring the line between editorial and marketing teams at the site.

According to an internal memo, “new management structure means that Josh Larson’s position as VP, Games is being eliminated and Josh will be leaving the company.”

His last day will be April 9.
