At that point it seemed that both were destined for executive roles within the wider organisation, but yesterday Schofield announced other plans.”I’ve had a great run here at Activision,” he said on Twitter. “I feel it’s time to try something new [though]. I’ll be leaving Activision end of [December] and taking some time off to relax. Then off to something else exciting.”Related JobsSenior Game Designer – UE4 – AAA United Kingdom Amiqus GamesProgrammer – REMOTE – work with industry veterans!
