EA CEO Andrew Wilson announced a separation between its sports game and non-sports game departments.
EA Sports is currently a distinct department under Wilson. Cam Weber, a longtime Madden NFL developer, will lead it. EA Sports will handle Madden NFL, EA Sports FC, F1, PGA Tour, Super Mega Baseball, NHL, and College Football.
Laura Miele’s new EA Entertainment department oversees all other studios. She was EA’s COO and would supervise executives like Vince Zampella, who run the division’s studios, including Respawn Entertainment, DICE, BioWare, Capital Games, and EA Originals.
Gaming behemoth restructuring.
Wilson will remain CEO, while Chief Experiences Officer Chris Bruzzo will retire at the end of the month and CFO Chris Suh is going for another position. David Tinson and Stuart Canfield will succeed them.
“This evolution of our company continues to empower our studio leaders with more creative ownership and financial accountability to make faster and more insightful decisions around development and go to market strategies,” Wilson told staff at the end of the day. These initiatives will accelerate our company, promote growth, and generate long-term value for our staff, players, and communities.”
Our business is robust, and I’m delighted to provide more incredible games and experiences to more people worldwide. “Thank you for your creativity, passion, and all that you do as we write the next great chapter of our story together,” Wilson ended.
