Yesterday EA lost three heads from major studios Playfish and Bioware. BioWare Austin vice president Gordon Walton has left to take on an executive producer role at Disney-owned social game studio Playdom, while two founding members of Playfish, the social game developer EA bought in 2009, are also set to leave the company.

EA said in a statement that it's "business as usual":

""It is business as usual at all BioWare studios, where we remain committed to creating, delivering and evolving the most emotionally engaging games in the world," concluded the statement. Electronic Arts is the parent company of BioWare, which also develops the Mass Effect and Dragon Age role-playing franchises.

Mobsters and Sorority Life creator Playdom, recently acquired by Disney for a handsome $763 million, is among the top developers of social games on Facebook.

A 33-year industry veteran, Walton joins the ranks of many respected stalwarts, like Playdom's Steve Meretzky, Zynga's Brian Reynolds and LolApps' Brenda Brathwaite, who've left the core game development business to work in the social sector.
