An unnamed executive at EA Tiburon has quit the company to form an independent studio nearby, according to reports.
The new studio, named Row Sham Bow, is said to be based just miles away from the EA Tiburon studio. According to a summary report published in the Orlando Business Journal, the studio has around 60 job vacancies.
The Orlando Business Journal did not publicly name the executive heading up Row Sham Bow.
It is likely that Ian Cummings (pictured), EA Tiburon’s Madden NFL creative director, is involved in the deal. He announced on EA’s blog that, after 11 years at the company, “I have decided to seek opportunities elsewhere”.
