EA COO Leaves for Zynga

John Schappert has parted ways with Electronic Arts, where he served as COO, to join social gaming giant Zynga, reports Reuters. Here's word on what could be interpreted as a sign of the times: "Zynga, which has enjoyed explosive growth with games such as FarmVille and CityVille, is gaining an executive with deep experience in leading a publicly traded video game company, which could help it gear up for an initial public offering, analysts said. A regulatory filing released on Tuesday showed Schappert resigned from EA on Monday. He had worked at the video game publisher for 22 months, and before that at Microsoft Corp for two years." Thanks Develop.

Dude, aside from a short trip to Microsoft he'd been at EA since 1994, and was COO prior to and after Microsoft.

Plus we do not know the circumstances under which he left. This could have been him forced out.

But since you're Cutter, and since this is a high up at EA, he's clearly a jerk that screwed the entire world over. Hell, his basement is probably wall-to-wall test tube clones of hitler and his bedroom wallpaper is probably dead babies.
