EA CEO Resigns

John Riccitiello, CEO of last year’s Worst Company in America as voted by readers of The Consumerist, has resigned yesterday, on the 18th of March 2013. This resignation should not come as a surprise to anyone, especially in the wake of the SimCity 5 launch and EA being nominated once again for Worst Company in America. However, the former CEO cited his reason for resignation as being due to financial troubles the company has been facing, resulting in multiple layoffs, such as at Bioware San Francisco.
