Chris Byatte and Joe Wee exit mobile publisher after eight years

Chillingo founders Chris Byatte and Joe Wee are the latest high-profile names to depart Electronic Arts.

Byatte and Wee set-up mobile games publisher Chillingo in 2005, and helped launch a number of major mobile titles including the original Angry Birds and Cut The Rope.

EA acquired Chillingo in October 2010 for $20m in cash, and both Byatte and Wee continued to lead the division for EA as director and general manager.

Byatte and Wee also led the 100% Indie initiative set-up last year as part of a collaboration between Samsung and Chillingo.
