Brown leaves EAAnother one bites the dust: EA VP Jeff Brown departs photo



EA? More like lEAve. Because that's what a lot of people are doing. PopCap (Plants vs. Zombies) CEO Dave Roberts and studio co-founder Jason Kapalka left PopCap. Criterion Games' (Burnout) co-founders have departed. Chillingo's founders have split.

Next is Jeff Brown who has served as EA's senior VP for corporate communications for the last 14 years. He's shacked up with camera-maker GoPro, according to VentureBeat.

Brown was infamous for his freewheeling quotability. He once told Oddworld's Lorne Lanning that he, "recommend[s] Lithium for the paranoia and Tourette Syndrome," in response to Lanning's claim that EA tried to buy him up during Stranger's Wrath struggles.

In a much more amiable quote, Brown emphasized that he is leaving EA not because of any issues with or at the company, but because of how much he likes GoPro. "I spent 14 years at EA," he said. "The only institution I have ever done longer is my marriage. When I started, I thought it would be a 12-month gig. I had no intention of staying that long. I fell in love with games, and I have a lot of close friends at EA. I am completely supportive of Andrew. But it was a good time for me to say goodbye."

There's a weak joke about the Call of Duty dog's GoPro and EA's failed attempts to topple Activision in here somewhere.

If you happen to have EA Access, I highly recommend playing Garden Warfare

I keep forgetting about EA Access. Perhaps you can say the same. It's a $4.99-per-month service for Xbox One that gives unlimited access to select games from you-know-who along with other perks like early demos. One of my fav...more

DICE: Battlefield 4's bad launch 'absolutely' damaged trust

I think it's nice that we've finally managed to hold EA accountable to something. Can its ripoff sports game releases be next? Well, I guess it's been DICE falling on the sword and profusely apologizing more than EA.&nbs...more
