It looks like PopCap Games is looking for a fresh start in the new year as they prepare to shuffle the deck and do a little restructuring as their CEO David Roberts steps down from his position after nine years on the job. Roberts is to be succeed by co-founder John Vechey when he leaves on January 8. In an interview with Venturebeat Vechey explained that

"PopCap's mission right now is to create the greatest mobile game studio in the world, and we're going to do that by only making games that are beloved by players... We're focusing on our foundation in 2014 – talent, process, and most importantly, great products, around that mission."

“We wish Dave all the best,” Vechey said. “When Dave joined PopCap, we needed a business leader to help us bring structure to our creative chaos and set us on a sustainable path. He has made a huge mark on PopCap, and we thank deeply him for it as he embraces his new adventure — which will probably consist of doing very little for a while! I continue to be the most passionate believer in PopCap, and I’m excited and honored about taking over as PopCap GM.”

For those of you not in the know PopCap's next will be the multiplayer shooter Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare that will be available on the PC, Xbox 360, and Xbox One this February.
