Maybe he got tired of working for DICE and EA, not that he had bad working conditions, but, to be a producer on such a big game-developing company must be consuming, giving you no time for doing anything other than work.
DICE senior producer Patrick Liu exits company to join Rovio's Stockholm office as creative director.
Another high-level developer has left DICE. General manager at Rovio Stockholm Oskar Burman announced through Twitter that Patrick Liu has come aboard the Angry Birds studio, where he will serve as creative director.
According to his LinkedIn profile, Liu served as a producer at DICE for more than five years. During his tenure at the Electronic Arts-owned company, he worked on Battlefield: Bad Company, Battlefield 1943, Medal of Honor's multiplayer component, and Battlefield 3.
Wow. He left one of the biggest AAA game studios to work with a phone game company.
Is working under EA really THAT shitty?
All this silly angst. It saddens me that gamer culture hasn't yet pulled itself out of the gutter it fell into in the 90's. A real gamer should be able to appreciate both Battlefield and Angry Birds.
Wonder if Dice might explode soon. Milking franchise and now devs quitting.... its starting to sound a little like A/IW.
Leaves DICE, goes to Rovio. wut. I don't even- I mean, you leave DICE to join a company that makes flash games about cartoon birds. I honestly don't even know what to say, is there no pride in being part of a team that makes awesome games (studio, not publisher)? It can't be for anything else but money.
What I saw was: "Battlefield Producer Leaves World for Real Gaming for Crush the Castle: Kids Version Developer."
