Watch Dogs' lead game designer Jamie Keen has apparently defected to Electronic Arts, as his LinkedIn profile indicates that he's joining EA Gothenburg as a gameplay producer.
The rumor is that he'll be working on the studio's next Need for Speed title, which will reportedly use the Frostbite 2.0 engine.
Keen allegedly left Ubisoft in February 2013; he had worked on Far Cry 3 through to late 2012, and had joined the Watch Dogs team afterward.
UbiSoft issued a "no comment" statement to press inquiries.
