Yesterday Remedy announced that Tero Virtala will be taking over as CEO at the company.
Virtala replaces Matias Myllyrinne who left the company back in June 2015 to become Head of Development at WarGaming in Cyprus. Taking over his responsibilities was Markus Mäki, co-founder and board member who now returns to overseeing studio operations.
“At the core of Remedy are truly talented and passionate people, and their proven ability to create unique, world-class gaming experiences. As the company moves towards multiple simultaneous game projects, it will offer more opportunities for the gamers, our people, partners and us as a company”,
”Shifting gears into a new production model like this needs to be managed well. In such a talent-filled company like Remedy, one important part of this evolution is to continue empowering our people and project teams more and more. I am excited and honored to be part of Remedy”.
A familiar name in the games industry, Virtala has over 12 years experience working as a CEO at RedLynx until his departure from the studio in 2014. He has been working with Remedy as a consultant since Spring.
