Call of Duty franchise loses strategist as Robert Bowling resigns

by Bill Hess on March 26, 2012


Robert Bowling has long been associated with the Call of Duty brand, and today, he resigned from his duties with the gaming industry’s biggest franchise. Bowling announced his resignation via Twitter where he said:

“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 announcement comes rather abruptly and Activision has already responded, thanking him for his tenure.

“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,” Activision explained.

Bowling has played an integral role in the shaping of the Call of Duty franchise, and for the most part, been a direct line of communication between fans and developers.

    Interesting, kind of like Peter Molyneaux. Both hype their games, both show exceptional enthusiasm for the work they represent, and both leave their positions without any warning signs beforehand. I wonder if there’s some internal friction between Sledgehammer and Infinity Ward?

  • dylan

    Maybe Jason and vice invited him over to respawn and ea , with an offer he can’t resist

  • njb

    TBH do you think it will effect COD in any way.

    Fair enough is easy to pick up and play and running and guning is fun for a while but everyone knows its gettin rehashed and repetitive.

  • blazeup

    i wonder if EA cut him a nice check

  • 1verce

    Lol i dont blame him, he probably was playing Mw3 and died 1 away from a moab to Dead mans hand, andd said ”What the Flying Fuck? ”IM GONE”

  • Aka ZZZ

    ^ The Stealth Clown is dumb, but I don’t think even he’s dumb enough to play that piece of shit game.

  • AIRFREAK

    5$ it’s respawn entertainment.

    god help us all

  • DontEatMeNerd

    I figured they lost their creative strategists already,being there was nothing creative in the Call of Duty franchise since Call of Duty 3.

    • Brevs

      Ok. We all that is not true. Some people act like Call of Duty has never been a good game before…
