"Alex Ward and Fiona Sperry have decided to leave EA," a spokesperson told Polygon this morning.

Ward and Sperry co-founded Criterion Games, the studio behind Burnout. EA says that the studio is hard at work on a new project for next-gen consoles, and that Matt Webster will be heading up this new game as well as Criterion in general.
