Newsweek's got the scoop on Neil Young's departure from publishing giant Electronic Arts. The 11-year veteran – who left for an unspecified "new project" and, anecdotally, wowed us at GDC
a couple years back – spent his tenure at EA working on everything from Majestic
to The Sims 2
to Medal of Honor: Airborne
Most recently, Young had been working at EA Blueprint working on making new IPs with smaller teams and smaller budgets; in his stead, EA Los Angeles' Louis Castle – who most recently brought us the well received Boom Blox
– will take the reins at EA/Blueprint, currently working on the next Spielberg project codenamed LMNO
. Level Up has the full email from EA Games Label pres Frank Gibeau announcing Young's departure and detailing the organizational changes.
