An SEC filing reveals that Gibeau "has chosen to transition on from the company." His last day with the company was yesterday, May 18.

"I can confirm that Frank Gibeau has chosen to transition on from Electronic Arts," an EA spokesperson told GameSpot. "Throughout a more than 20-year career, Frank's made many significant contributions to the company, our people and our games. Most recently, he's worked to strengthen EA Mobile by building a great team. We thank Frank for his achievements at EA, and we wish him all the best in his next chapter."

Prior to heading up EA's mobile efforts, Gibeau was president of EA Labels. He also held a variety of other positions with the company since his hiring in 1991, including director of marketing and president of EA Games.

"It's been a really great ride, the best job ever, jam-packed with incredible life experiences and filled with many great friends," Gibeau said in a statement shared with GameSpot. "After an incredible 20-year career, I've accomplished all that I could have imagined and more. I'm very proud of all the great games that I had a chance to work on. I thank EA for the opportunity and wish them the very best. I am excited to explore my next challenge."

EA has not yet announced a replacement for Gibeau. The EA Mobile team will report to CEO Andrew Wilson in the interim as the company "work[s] through [its] long-term organizational plans."

As part of its most recent earnings report, mobile revenue was a bright spot, setting a company record with $524 million during the year ended March 31.
