The former, which houses the publisher’s owned IP and licensed games, will be headed up by Laura Miele, who has been appointed president of EA Entertainment, Technology & Central Development.
Samantha Ryan will run the division’s lifestyle franchises and blockbuster single-player games, while Jeff Karp will remain in charge of the mobile games business.
EA Sports will continue to be headed up by Cam Weber, who has been appointed president of the organisation responsible for the company’s sports and racing games.
EA CEO Andrew Wilson announced the restructuring plans in a message shared with the company’s employees on Tuesday.
“This evolution of our company continues to empower our studio leaders with more creative ownership and financial accountability to make faster and more insightful decisions around development and go to market strategies,” he said.
“These steps will accelerate our business, drive growth, and deliver long-term value for our people, our players and our communities.”
Wilson also confirmed that Chris Bruzzo is leaving his position as chief experiences officer, a role which will be taken on by former chief marketing officer David Tinson.
And chief financial officer Chris Suh has chosen to leave the company. He will be replaced by Stuart Canfield, who was previously senior vice president of finance.
EA announced in March that it planned to cut 6% of its workforce as part of a restructuring plan that would result in the company incurring up to $200 million in charges.
These consist of “approximately $65 million to $70 million in charges related to intellectual property impairment, approximately $55 million to $65 million related to employee severance and employee-related costs, approximately $45 million to $55 million associated with office space reductions, and approximately $5 million to $10 million of other charges, including contract cancellations.”
