Former EA Exec Joins SCi To Identify 'Development Ops'

Representatives from Eidos owners SCi have revealed that former Electronic Arts executive Phil Rogers has been appointed as SCi's corporate development director to identify "strategic areas for development and assessing market opportunities."
Representatives from British publisher and developer SCi, owners of Eidos Interactive, have revealed that former Electronic Arts executive Phil Rogers has joined the company as firm's the corporate development director, effective immediately. Prior to his appointment, Rogers served for three years as the vice president of corporate development at Electronic Arts where he worked to identify potential studio acquisitions, a role which he will be again serving for SCi, where he will identify "strategic areas for development and assessing market opportunities." The appointment of Rogers seems particularly poignant considering SCi and Eidos recent moves towards expansion. The news follows a £44.4 million ($86.7 million) investment in SCi by Warner Bros. late last year, a deal that netted Warner Bros. 10.3 percent of SCi's shares, as well as presented the SCI with the necessary capital to potentially fund future expansion efforts. Additionally, last month Eidos officials announced that the company acquired British wireless developer Rockpool Games and Rockpool’s two sister companies, Ironstone Partners and SoGoPlay. The deal saw Eidos take on Rockpool’s Manchester studios along with thirty-six staff, who continue to work on a number of titles in development.
