With Titanfall 2 and Battlefield 1 both releasing before the end of the year, Electronic Arts has started to restructure the organization and better prepare for the future and the rapid advancement of technology. In an organizational update, EA has announced that it has now formed EA Worldwide Studios.
“EA Worldwide Studios will bring together our top creative talent in all of our great studios to work on EA’s powerful brand portfolio and new IP.”
By restructuring EA and forming EA Worldwide Studios, EA and its developers will be able to focus on the organization’s ability to deliver stronger games in different genres and platforms worldwide. Samantha Ryan (Senior Vice President of EA) and EA Mobile and Maxis will now be joining EA Worldwide Studios which will be lead by Patrick Söderlund (Executive Vice President of EA, Sweden). Samantha Ryan will continue to lead EA Mobile and Maxis but she will now also begin to lead BioWare, where she will work closely with Aaryn Flynn (General Manager and Vice President of BioWare). Ken Moss (Chief Technology Officer of EA) will now be taking over as the lead of the Frostbite Engine team.
“Every day, I am inspired by our work, our achievements, and the opportunity in front of us to accomplish even more incredible things for Electronic Arts and for our players.” – Andrew Wilson, Chief Executive Officer
