Call of Duty’s Creative Strategist Leaves Infinity Ward

THE BUZZ: In a very unexpected move, Call of Duty Creative Strategist Robert Bowling announced that he has left the series, its developer Infinity Ward, and its publisher Activision.

EGM’s TAKE: Wow, this is quite a huge surprise. It seems like whenever we’re talking about news or updates regarding the Call of Duty series, we’re getting that information straight from Bowling (who is often known under his handle FourZeroTwo). So, his departure is quite unexpected.

Here’s the message Bowling posted to his Twitter account just a few hours ago now:

“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.”

While no real explanation for his departure has yet been given, Activision did release this 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.”
