Watch_Dogs lead designer quits Ubisoft for EA

While the rest of the world hasn't even gotten started on Watch_Dogs, one man is apparently finished with it already. Jamie Keen, lead game designer on the project (who also held the same position on Far Cry 3), has apparently packed up and left Ubisoft completely, signing up with EA to work in a gameplay producer role with Sweden-based Ghost Games.

The studio formerly known as EA Gothenburg is reportedly working on a new Need for Speed title alongside Criterion, said to use the Frostbite 2 engine and following in the tyre tracks of last year's Most Wanted.

Keen's job-hopping was revealed via his LinkedIn online CV. He had previously worked at EA and DICE between 2001 and 2009, contributing to Battlefield 1942, the original Crysis and the reboot of Syndicate.
