EA’s Pleasants joins Playdom

Publish date:

Emerging casual force Playdom, the firm responsible for leading MySpace social network game Mobsters, has joined this morning's high profile exec merry-go-round by announcing its capture of former EA COO John Pleasants as its new CEO.

News broke late last night not only of Pleasants' departure from EA, but also of the surprise return to the publisher of John Schappert, who left EA to become Microsoft's head of Xbox Live in 2007.
