Andrew Wilson, CEO of Electronic Arts (EA), has announced that the company has changed its internal structure with a split between its sports game and non-sports game divisions. EA Sports will still be called that, but is now a separate department and directly answerable to Wilson. It’ll be headed by Cam Weber, who’s long been an integral part of the teams making Madden NFL. The EA Sports division will be responsible for Madden NFL, EA Sports FC, F1, PGA Tour, Super Mega Baseball, NHL, and College Football.

All the other studios fall under the umbrella of the newly formed EA Entertainment department, which is led by Laura Miele. She previously served as EA’s COO and will oversee the work of executives like Vince Zampella, who remain at their posts leading the various studios making up the division, such as Respawn Entertainment, DICE, BioWare, and Capital Games as well as the EA Originals publishing label.

Wilson himself will continue as CEO, though there have also been some departures on the leadership level of the company: Chief Experiences Officer Chris Bruzzo will retire at the end of the month and CFO Chris Suh is leaving the company for another job. They’ll be replaced by David Tinson and Stuart Canfield in their respective positions.

At the end of the day, Wilson wrote in his message to the employees, “this evolution of our company continues to empower our studio leaders with more creative ownership and financial accountability to make faster and more insightful decisions around development and go to market strategies. These steps will accelerate our business, drive growth, and deliver long-term value for our people, our players and our communities.”

“Our business remains strong, and I could not be more excited about our future as we bring more amazing games and experiences to more people around the world. Thank you for your creativity, passion, and all that you do, as we write the next great chapter of our story together,” Wilson concluded his announcement.
