Frostbite Engine Team Joins EA’s Tech Organization; Organizational Structure Updated
EA has announced several changes to its organizational structure, including changes to the formation of EA’s Worldwide Studios, and EA’s Frostbite Engine team.
The update to EA’s structural organization was announced on the publisher’s official website overnight by the company’s chief financial officer, Andrew Wilson. Due to the changes, EA’s mobile division and the Maxis studio will join EA Worldwide Studios led by Patrick Söderlund. Samanthy Ryan, EA’s senior vice president of EA Mobile and Maxis, will now report to Söderlund but will also be in charge of BioWare.
The formation of EA Worldwide Studios. At a time when players are engaged in games across more devices, the tenets of making great HD and mobile experiences are converging. Our ability to blend our strengths to deliver amazing games across genres, geographies and platforms, in a networked environment, is central to our future success. 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. EA Mobile and Maxis will join this central studios organization led by Patrick Söderlund. Samantha Ryan, who will now report to Patrick, will continue to lead our Mobile and Maxis teams. Sam will also take on leadership of BioWare, where her love for RPGs and experience with open-world adventure games is an outstanding fit to work with Aaryn Flynn and his great team.
Structural changes are also being made to EA’s Frostbite team, which will be moved over to the company’s tech organization led by Ken Moss. Moss joined EA back in 2014 and has since then been in charge of the organization, strategy and vision for EA’s Digital Platform and Information Technology divisions.
The Frostbite team joins our Technology organization. Our drive to power everything we do at EA with world-class technology has never been stronger. Players expect innovative, stable and secure experiences, and the strong combination of our Frostbite engine and our digital platform will make this possible. As a result, our central Frostbite Engine team will move to the CTO group led by Ken Moss.
