Bowling bails on Infinity Ward

Written by David Stellmack

The face of COD is moving on

Infinity Ward’s Creative Strategist for the Call of Duty series, or the public face of the Call of Duty franchise (none other than Robert Bowling), has announced via Twitter that he is parting ways with Infinity Ward and parent company, Activision.

Bowling issued a simple statement on Twitter that read, “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.”  His Twitter feed provided no details or clues as to his future plans. Of course, with Bowling’s high profile within the gaming community it is believed that a number of companies could use his talents.

Activision issued a statement saying the following: “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.” At least on the surface, Activision is trying to make sure it looks like a cordial split, and right now we have no information leading us to believe that it wasn’t.

Of course, we will keep digging. What we can tell you is that we have no reason yet to think that Bowling will be joining Jason West and Vince Zampella at Respawn.
