Bioware VP heading to mobile gaming firm Playdom

The executive exodus from Electronic Arts continues, as BioWare Austin vice president Gordon Walton steps down from his post following two reported departures — those of COO Sebastien de Halleux and technology lead Sami Lababidi — from the publishing giant’s social wing Playfish.

Walton is leaving for Playdom, where he will become an executive producer. The reasons for the departure is unknown, though EA says it’s “it is business as usual” across its BioWare studios.
