Two Playfish Co-Founders Depart from Electronic Arts

Electronic Arts confirmed today that two of the founders of Playfish, the social games platform it acquired in late 2009, are leaving the company. InsideSocialGames was the first to report that Sebastien de Halleux, the former Playfish COO, and Sami Lababidi, the former head of development, are stepping down. Going forward, a spokesperson said they will both work as consultants as EA brings its other gaming properties to social networks.
