Newsbrief: Electronic Arts bid farewell to longtime company man Frank Gibeau this week, stating in an SEC report (brought to Gamasutra's attention by CNet's Ian Sherr) that Gibeau "has chosen to transition on from the company."

Gibeau has been with the company for nearly 25 years, and told the story of interviewing at its Redwood City headquarters in 1991 as part of the EA retrospective Gamasutra published back in 2007.

During his time there he moved through a variety of roles, including president of EA Games and, finally, executive vice president of EA Mobile.

It was in that capacity that he recently championed EA's attempts to prototype smartwatch games, and it's yet unclear where he's headed next.
