EA COO John Schappert resigns, reportedly heads for Zynga

Former Microsoft corporate vice president of Live -- and now former EA COO -- John Schappert has left EA and is reportedly heading to the greener pastures of Zynga. A Securities and Exchange Commission filing this morning confirmed Schappert's departure, official as of this past Monday.

A "source close to the matter" told Reuters that Schappert has plans to work at Zynga in some capacity, though his role at the company (if a role even currently exists) has yet to be confirmed. EA confirmed Schappert's departure to us, but declined to offer a comment regarding his decision to leave.
