Can't say it surprises me greatly. Of course it's possible there's something internal we don't know about, but 1 guy can only take the grievances of the whole internet for so long.

Amazing news!

Robert quote: "NO LAST STAND!!!!!!" *crowd cheers*

He better not be going anywhere near respawn.

No loss really. Maybe now they'll hire a proper community manager (creative strategist!?)

Probably because of the issues that people have with the game. I sent him numerous Tweets, all non-abusive, asking about lag compensation, host frame rates etc, and he ignored them all. I even repeated some of them just to make sure you he got them. He was also sent several photos of scoreboards showing people boosting and nothing was ever done.

 

If you praised the game and IW he would reply.

Just because he didn't reply doesn't mean he didn't pass them on to the powers that be.

Robert Trolling is gone!

Is he going to join half the old cod/ IW devs at respawn entertainment?

http://www.respawn.com/company/

I had only just realised they had a site (LOL) but look at all the devs and the high quality games they have worked on at least 70% of the company have worked on a Call Of Duty and other high quality games socom 2, god of war etc
