Chillingo today confirmed that founders Chris Byate and Joe Wee have left the company, providing more high-profile departures for parent company Electronic Arts.

Byate and Wee founded Chillingo as a video game publisher back in 2005, and the company was acquired by EA in 2010.

Now a Chillingo rep has confirmed the duo's departure, although Gamasutra was told there is no further information being given at this time.

This is the latest in a string of big names leaving EA studios. PopCap co-founders Dave Roberts and Jason Kapalka are leaving the company this week, while Criterion Games co-founders Alex Ward and Fiona Sperry also left recently.

Leaving to work on another project is one thing, but wow... I suspect there was some kind of contractual obligation at time of purchase, for "transitional" reasons, and with the new year they can leave (in droves it seems).
