Gavin Raeburn leaves Codemasters

We suppose it had to happen sometime, and a month after helming the release of DiRT 2 is as good a time as any. We are talking about Codemasters’ executive producer for the Colin McRae and GRID titles, Gavin Raeburn, leaving the UK publisher.

“After successfully rebooting two of Codemasters’ heritage franchises as DiRT and GRID, executive producer Gavin Raeburn has moved on to pastures new,” Gavin Cheshire, VP of Codemasters said. “Following the recent success of the award winning DiRT 2, it’s positive for any individual to move when they feel they’re at the top. He leaves having built an incredibly talented team that’s led by key players who will drive our racing portfolio forward. He has my best wishes and our thanks for all the successes enjoyed during his time at Codemasters.”

Alas, poor Raeburn, we hardly knew ye. Any bets on where he will end up?
