EA has more high level turnover than a company like that should. Never a good thing.

Re: Rex Dickson Leaves EA Tiburon and the Madden Team

I work in the administrative side of Hospital Health Care and after awhile, the bottom line pushes you to a change that’s more about happiness and piece of mind when your creative ideas to make things better are a secondary focus.

A wise man knows when to journey to the other side of the river without burning the bridge behind him!!!

Interesting that EA Play is about 5 weeks away and this happens.

So if the game doesn’t show the CFM leap after ‘18 neglect, just curious who will be willing from current team, to be the frontman to try and sell the next Creative Leads plan to the Sim/CFM Comm after Rex promised it would receive its due focus with Meta showing its the most played?

Question is though, how long before the next CD is introduced to the Madden community?

Will he/she continue with Dev accessibility to community or take a diffferent direction?

Madden ‘19 will really be under the microscope now.

I would put my expectations on knowing the future vision for the game past '19 around EA play through the interviews we get. Though I'm not sure how interactive Clint will be with the vision stuff. He is amazing on being clear on game play though

With Rex leaving do you guys expect to get Madden 19 news sooner. Iím assuming getting the news late with him leaving might be a bad thing as it might indicate some uncertainty with the game.

Honestly, I don't think it matters to EA either way. The sim community and OS/internet gamers are still a small minority in the minds of executives. So I would expect it to probably mirror last years info release.

I think it has to do with sky high expectations combined with a yearly release cycle. It's got to be a lot of pressure from executives and then also from the fans of the game. I wonder if Rex regrets making himself so available to everyone on twitter, reddit and anywhere else he may have been posting and answering questions.

I'm not giving up hope. Rex always talked sim but it never really translated into the actual game.

Anyway, according to his LinkedIn he's already got a new position at a mobile game studio in Colorado, so whatever the reason he left, he's already landed on his feet. People are way too quick to speculate that something bad happened.
I think if he was just burnt out the timing of his resignation would be different, not mid dev cycle.
