Peter Moore Leaves EA to Head Soccer Club

Peter Moore Leaves EA to Head Soccer Club

Peter Moore is leaving his role at EA, and will soon head to Liverpool Football Club as its CEO. Moore has had a lengthy career in gaming, starting off at Sega around the time of the Dreamcast. From there, he went on to work at Microsoft, before finally becoming chief competition officer at EA.

“Peter has been with us here at EA for nearly 10 years, and I consider myself privileged to have had the opportunity to work alongside him for that entire journey,” wrote EA’s CEO Andrew Wilson. “If you’ve seen him on stage, or follow him on Twitter, or have ever read an interview with him, you will have a sense of Peter’s wit and charisma.  What you should also know is that he is an unbelievable teammate, a tireless leader for our people, and his deep appreciation for great games and the passionate players in our communities is unwavering.”

Before joining Sega, Moore worked for Reebok for almost two decades. Many believed that he was solely responsible for Sega pivoting away from hardware to become a platform-agnostic developer, but as Eurogamer points out, the situation was a lot more complicated.

“I believe deeply in following our passions and dreams in life,” Wilson continued. “Spend every moment doing something that you love.  We’ve been fortunate to have Peter doing that with us here for almost a decade.  We could not be happier to see him take the helm at Liverpool, and I personally could not be more honored to call Peter a dear friend for life.”
