Bowling didn't offer a reason for leaving, or hint at his future plans, but his DICE counterpart Daniel Matros wrote: "I know wherever you are in the world you'll be a star. Thanks for everything and good luck! Welcome to Sweden anytime!"
Activision said in a statement: "We sincerely thank Robert for his many years of service. He's been a trusted and valued member of the Infinity Ward team. We wish him all the best on his decision to pursue future opportunities."
