EA has revealed that the Steve Papoutsis who served as the franchise executive director on Dead Space, where he worked on all five entries in the survival-horror saga. He also served as the VP, general manager and executive producer on Battlefield Hardline.

Initially reported by Kotaku, we've since confirmed its validity. "We are thankful for Steve's many contributions to EA and wish him the best," the publisher said in a statement to Eurogamer. "The Visceral team continues to be focused on new game content for Battlefield Hardline including expansion packs, as well as new development projects."

His role as general manager has been replaced by Scott Probst, who's been with EA since 2003 and most recently served as senior producer on Battlefield Hardline, where he led development on its multiplayer. Prior to that he worked on such series as Medal of Honor, Lord of the Rings, Command & Conquer, Dead Space and other Battlefield titles. Apparently his forte is in handling multiplayer development.

It is unknown why Papoutsis has left Visceral and EA has yet to comment on the exact reason for his departure. You can find Papoutsis' Official Twitter here.
