The publishing giant announced that Frank Sagnier and Rashid Varachia will be leaving at the end of July 2021, which apparently had “always been part of the plan.” However, due to the speed of Codemasters’ integration into the EA family, their departures were bumped forward.
Since joining in 2014, Frank has led Codemasters to a position as a globally renowned studio of racing experts, and enabled their world class talent and passion for motorsports to shine and excel on a global stage.
Rashid’s financial leadership has also been integral to Codemasters’ success, his contributions include driving key acquisitions, listing on the stock market back in 2018, and leading the due diligence and integration of Codemasters into EA.
We are incredibly thankful to Frank and Rashid for everything they have done for Codemasters and Electronic Arts, and we all wish them the very best. We know the culture they have created and their innovative spirit will very much live on at the studio through their outstanding leadership team.
F1 2021 is the first game to be released by Codemasters since being acquired by EA, which comes out in mid-Julyl
