PopCap CEO to Retire

After nine years as CEO of PopCap, creator of Plants vs Zombies and Peggle, Dave Roberts is stepping down from the position next week. He will be succeeded by John Vechey, who practically became a household name among gamers when he announced Peggle 2 by jumping into the air and dancing to Ode To Joy at E3 last year.

On January 8th, the switch will take place. PopCap became hugely successful due to their Plants Vs. Zombies, Peggle and Bejeweled franchises, and were bought by mega-publisher Electronic Arts back in 2011 for $750 million. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
