Pfft, shill

Robert Bowling has announced that he has resigned from his current position as creative strategist of Call of Duty. The hype-man – who has become the face of the biggest gaming brand in the world over the past few years – announced his departure on Twitter overnight.

He said:

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.

No reason was given for his resignation, but it seems like it was made on amicable terms. Activision quickly followed up with the following well wishes:

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.

Bowling was one of the few familiar faces to stick with Infinity Ward following the mass exodus in 2010. There’s no word yet on where he’s headed next.
