Peter Moore is departing EA to head up Liverpool FC

Replacing Ian Ayre as CEO

Peter Moore is moving on not only from Electronic Arts, but the industry at large.

The executive known for his roles at Sega of America, Microsoft, and most recently EA is leaving to become CEO of Liverpool Football Club in June. It’ll be super weird not seeing him on-stage at E3.

“Peter will leave an incredible legacy,” said EA CEO Andrew Wilson in the company’s announcement today. “Peter led our sports business to some of its biggest moments as President of EA SPORTS. As our Chief Operating Officer, he helped us navigate the transformation of our company and the evolution of our business in a digital world. In the past year as Chief Competition Officer, he has driven EA’s rapid expansion in competitive gaming. Above all, through his time at EA, Microsoft and Sega, Peter has been a statesman and advocate for our industry.”

Moore was born in Liverpool and is clearly a lifelong fan, so this must feel like an unbeatable gig.
