Longstanding Infinity Ward community representative and all-round nice guy Robert “Fourzerotwo” Bowling has announced over on Twitter that he is leaving Infinity Ward.
“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.”
The tweet not only confirms that he is leaving Infinity Ward, but it also indirectly states that he will not be moving onto another Activision-owned project.
Activision responded with an official press release:
“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 gave no indication of where he is headed, but it is likely that he will take on a similar role with another developer. Bowling joins a long list of key Infinity Ward personnel who have gone AWOL since its two founders left the company and subsequently entered into a longwinded legal battle with publisher Activision.
