Report: Watch Dogs And Far Cry 3 Lead Leaves Ubisoft To Rejoin EA

Jamie Keen was the lead designer for both Ubisoft's upcoming Watch Dogs and last year's beloved Far Cry 3, but now it looks like he'll be working on the next Need for Speed project for EA.

A few super sleuths have caught onto the fact that Keen's LinkedIn profile has recently been updated to reflect the fact that he "left Ubisoft Montreal in February to join EA Gothenburg as a gameplay producer." This could mean that Keen is helping work on the next-gen Need For Speed title, which is expected to use EA's Frostbite 2 engine. Ubisoft has declined to comment on Keen's possible departure. Keen is already familiar with EA, since he worked at Battlefield developer DICE a while back.
