Chris LaRoche noticed the cdmagnews bit about Scott Youngblood moving to EA. He had previously been working for Dynamix as a designer for Tribes and Tribes 2. The article doesn't specifically say Youngblood is moving to Origin however.
Scott Youngblood announced in his .plan file today announcing that he will be leaving Dynamix on Friday to pursue an opportunity at Electronic Arts. Youngblood will be working with the Online division of EA as a lead designer on an undisclosed multiplayer project. Youngblood was a designer on Tribes and the upcoming Tribes 2.
Mmm.. my heart rate picks up every time I see the words "undisclosed multiplayer project" used in relation to Electronic Arts (the company that owns Origin)..
