Visceral Games has only just launched Battlefield Hardline after quite the headline-grabbing development of the game, with the studio's Vice President and General Manager, Steve Papoutsis, leaving the company.




Papoutsis had been with EA for nearly 15 years, working on a bunch of huge games like the Battlefield series and Dead Space. He then took over on Battlefield Hardline, but an EA spokesperson has confirmed that he is no longer with the company. EA added: "we are thankful for Steve's many contributions to EA and wish him the best".


Scott Probst, who has been a Producer with EA, and is the son of EA's Chairman, Larry Probst, is now the new boss of Visceral Games. An EA spokesperson told Polygon: "The Visceral team continues to be focused on new game content for Battlefield Hardline including expansion packs, as well as new development projects".
