Battlefield producer joins Angry Birds dev

DICE senior producer Patrick Liu exits company to join Rovio's Stockholm office as creative director.


Another high-level developer has left DICE. General manager at Rovio Stockholm Oskar Burman announced through Twitter that Patrick Liu has come aboard the Angry Birds studio, where he will serve as creative director.

According to his LinkedIn profile, Liu served as a producer at DICE for more than five years. During his tenure at the Electronic Arts-owned company, he worked on Battlefield: Bad Company, Battlefield 1943, Medal of Honor's multiplayer component, and Battlefield 3.

Liu's departure from DICE marks the second such high-profile exit in as many months. Former lead designer David Goldfarb jumped ship in July. He has since joined Starbreeze Studios.

It is not clear what Liu will be working on at Rovio. The company recently launched its Angry Birds follow-up, Amazing Alex, and is currently teasing a game involving "Bad Piggies."
