Thanks go to the ever vigiliant Lion over at CNCDen for noticing this story. Gamespy, in a recent article revealing that Dustin Browder (EA game designer responsible for titles such as Red Alert 2, C&C Generals and Battle For Middle Earth) is moving to Blizzard, also mentioned some Red Alert 3 related rumours:
"There have been some rumors coming out of EA that even more of a shakeup with the old Westwood team is coming. Mark Skaggs, who recently announced that a new RTS in the Red Alert universe was in the works, is said to be taking a leave of absense to spend time with his family. There is no official confirmation from EA, but how that pans out remains to be seen. We'll stay on top of it and bring you more details as they become available."
This of course (if true!) should mean that Red Alert 3 is somewhat affected, in terms of who will be in charge of particular areas of the development. It's also interesting to see a very well known face moving alliances. EA's loss is Blizzard's gain.
