PopCap Games is losing the executive producer of its Bejeweled franchise. Giordano “Gio” Contestabile is stepping down from the EA-owned property, news that comes just a few days after EA CEO John Riccitello announced his plans to resign. He worked at PopCap for six years.

Contestabile has joined Tilting Point, an independent game publisher where All Things D reports that several other EA vets also have recently landed.

Electronic Arts purchased PopCap for up to $1.3 billion in July 2011.

Contestabile is a former Geek of the Week on GeekWire.
