Creative Strategist at Infinity Ward, Robert Bowling has revealed today that he will be leaving his position at Infinity Ward.
Robert Bowling has been a huge part of the Modern Warfare Call of Duty games, he has always been tweeting about the game and keeping the community well informed about what goes on over at Infinity Ward.
He had worked at Infinity Ward for over 6 years.
Robert Bowling revealed the news on twitter, posting the following: “Today, I resign from my position as Creative Strategist of Call of Duty, as a lead of Infinity Ward, and as an employee of Activision.”
Infinity Ward’s official feed also posting a message: “We wish Robert all the best. Thanks for everything,” before directing his followers to subscribe to @infinityward for future Modern Warfare updates.”
Activision has allegedly released the following statement: “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.”
No official word has been released on why Robert Bowling has resigned from his position but we think it may have something to with something he said in the Machinma live feed a few weeks ago. “I feel like we are in a f*cking era where everyone is so focused on subscriber numbers and all that stuff that we need to get back to what I feel like we did so much better in the old days of just plain good will, like stuff like the LAN patch, yeah it is lower priority but let’s get it out the f*cking door. Let’s just do it.” Could it be that Bowling’s strong feelings about where Call of Duty is heading caused him to leave?
