That might be the case, as Robert Bowling, who was the creative strategist for Call of Duty, resigned yesterday. He announced his resignation through Twitter.
“Today, I resign from my position as Creative Strategist for Call of Duty, as a lead of Infinity Ward, and as an employee of Activision,” he said.
Bowling started work with Activision in 2006, and worked his way up from Call of Duty community manager to one of the most prominent faces in the franchise’s history.
In regards to his departure, Activision sent out a press statement saying, “We sincerely thank Robert for his many years of service. He’s been a trusted and valued member of the Infinity Ward team. We wish him all the best on his decision to pursue future opportunities.”
So it looks like someone new will be handling Call of Duty’s community presence. Probably someone with a whole lot of patience, considering the rambunctious nature of the game’s community.
