Robert Bowling, the creative strategist at Call of Duty developer and series creator Infinity Ward, has resigned. According to his latest Tweet, he is no longer involved with any aspect of the record-breaking series:
"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."
Mr Bowling recently described his role within the company, stating that he "work[s] with the other leads to make sure that we fully understand the vision and expectation for the game we’re trying to deliver, so that we can execute on that vision."
Activision, while stopping short of explaining the circumstances around his departure or who might be replacing him on the team, have none the less responded to his departure:
"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."
