Glen Schofield was general manager of Visceral Games, and Michael Condrey was COO. It's thought the pair are forming a new studio, to produce a title for publishing rival Activision.
"We can confirm that Glen and Mike are leaving EA," EA told . "There is a very talented team of people at Visceral and development of Dead Space Extraction and Dante's Inferno continue under our Group general manager Nick Earl."
Visceral Games was formerly known as EA Redwood Shores and handled the James Bond license for EA, then Bond left for Activision and the studio rebranded and produced Dead Space.
