Visceral Games general manager Steve Papoutsis has left Electronic Arts after nearly 15 years with the company, and Battlefield: Hardline senior producer Scott Probst has stepped up to fill his shoes.

If that surname sounds familiar, it's because Scott is the son of longtime EA executive Larry Probst, who resigned from the company (but not its board) in December. 

News of the shakeup was first brought to our attention by Kotaku and confirmed by EA representatives, who gave no explanation for Papoutsis' departure but stated that "We are thankful for Steve’s many contributions to EA and wish him the best."

Papoutsis joined EA in 2000 and worked on titles like Majestic before taking a senior role in developing the Dead Space games; his departure comes less than a month after the studio shipped Battlefield: Hardline
