According to a post on Civilization fan-site Apolyton, Johnson left the company as of April 2nd to return to EA, where he previously interned on the Knockout Kings franchise programming teams, to work with the publisher's Spore group in an unspecified role.

According to various sources, including a panel from E3 2006, Johnson had been working on an original IP at Firaxis -- no word has yet emerged on what his departure means for the yet unannounced title.
