2 Guys I trusted most at Tiburon (Phil and Ian) are now the two that are leaving. I wish him well in whatever he will do.

Good luck to Phil.

That was majorly unexpected. If anything it is good timing, in the since that the game almost finished.
I wonder who will take his spot

He was probably holding the company back anyway. Good riddance

As long as Madden keeps improving, that's all that matters to me.
Best of luck though to Phil on his future!

Hopefully this doesn't affect the direction they're currently going in.

Pretty surprising though.

Pasta must have one heckuva mole at EA.

Best Jack Bauer imitation:

I want to know who's leaving and I want to know now!

We don't have much time, tell me now or you won't see tomorrow.

You must have more inside info that Pasta.

You do know Phil was their since 97, you know the PS1 and PS2 days.

Surprising.

Good thing: I didn't like the direction Madden was going until this year. So maybe it's better that he left.

Bad thing: I don't know if the guy that is replacing him will be better or worse.
So, Phil had nothing to do with this year at all?

Doesn't matter. It's gone down hill. He's to blame also. He got old and stale, just like the game. Like a bag of Doritos that's been in the cabinet for too long.

O damn .....lol. His twitter 3 hours ago..

"@ultrajens- well... ****"

I hope Phil finds another job soon but im glad there is new blood among the Dev team...

Since he was the leading developer, I think he probably had a lot to say about the upcoming franchise mode.

This is the 3rd guy one to leave right?
