3G Studios President CannedCEO James Kosta said in a statement, “Mr. Markham had a history of creating best-selling franchises and we had faith in his ability to create original properties and form new strategic partnerships. “However, after eight months we have found that a productive and creative relationship is unachievable. We’re saddened to announce the Board’s decision to end the relationship.” Markham joined with the Nevada-based 3G in February this year from Vivendi Games, where he was chief creative officer. Markham is also the founder of Gray Matter Studios, serving as producer of Return to Castle Wolfenstein, Redneck Rampage and Kingpin: Life of Crime. Kosta added, "At times, we had the opportunity to see Mr. Markham as a creative and imaginative individual and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors.” The studio is currently working on an unannounced PS3, PC and Xbox 360 title with a "major publisher." The company is also continuing to work towards opening a Wii-only studio. The position of president is currently open.
