EA Senior Devs at Center of Sexual Misconduct Investigation

Workplace misconduct has once again reared its ugly head in the gaming industry, this time with Electronic Arts (EA) senior devs at the center of the storm. Former Call of Duty dev and current studio boss at Midnight Society, Robert Bowling, recently called out individuals who allegedly behaved inappropriately towards female co-workers.


According to Bowling, an internal sexual misconduct investigation at EA led to revelations about Dev Director of Plants vs. Zombies, Jordan Adams, and Director Partnerships at EAX, Matthew Angeleri. Adams was found to have video called female colleagues to perform lewd acts on himself, sent them pornographic content, and made explicit references in EA Slack conversations. On the other hand, Angeleri invited female co-workers to stay at his home in Vegas, where he allegedly sexually harassed them privately, even sending videos of himself engaged in inappropriate acts.

A follow-up with Bowling confirmed that the investigation at EA has concluded, with the alleged perpetrators not repeating their actions once the probe began. Despite this, it is disturbing to note that the victims are still required to work alongside their harassers. Nonetheless, one victim's manager has taken steps to ensure she does not interact with the individual who harassed her.

It is essential to highlight that sexual misconduct and harassment have no place in any workplace. EA has been contacted for a comment on the investigation, and updates will be provided as soon as available.
