Robert Bowling, Creative Strategist of Call of Duty and Infinity Ward tweeted his resignation earlier today. Bowling has worked with the team for nearly six years and too many have become the face of the Call of Duty franchise.
Bowling has been involved in many of the interviews done around the franchise from the COD XP Event to chatting it up with the folks at Gametrailers regularly.
Earlier today Bowling simply tweeted:
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.
Shortly after Activision issued a brief 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.
Bowling’s resignation tweet does seem a bit odd as he does not talk about his future plans or even reflect upon his time at Activision.
