According to a report today from VG 24/7, Dragon Age 3 publisher Electronic Arts could be losing yet another executive after a recent flurry of departures from Chillingo, Criterion and PopCap.

According to Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter, executive vice president of EA mobile Frank Gibeau could be the next boss to leave the company after executive restructuring left him with a lesser role with the publisher.

“He was reassigned to a much less influential position and promptly sold all of his stock, so I think he is planning a move soon,” Pachter said, though he did add that he believes there won’t be any other high-profile departures coming soon.

EA restructured its executive positions after former CEO John Riccitiello left the company, including naming former EA Sports boss Andrew Wilson as the new chief executive.

If Gibeau leaves EA, he would be joining a handful of important figures within the organization to leave recently, including Chillingo’s Chris Byatte and Joe Wee, Criterion’s Alex Ward and Fiona Sperry and PopCap’s Jason Kapalka and Dave Roberts.

Of that handful of bosses, Pachter keyed in on the Chillingo founders leaving as a potential body blow to EA.

“The Chillingo founders are really the glue that holds that organization together, so I think their departure is a big deal,” Pachter said.
