Finland-based Alan Wake
developer Remedy Entertainment is betting big on upcoming Xbox One exclusive Quantum Break
, which was announced earlier this year.
However, Remedy is also looking to the coming console transition and market fragmentation as a chance to diversify, and has announced it is branching further into the mobile and online space as a result.
"From my perspective, the industry is going through an incredible amount of uncertainty and risk, but on the other hand, we're seeing the cards being dealt again," Remedy chief executive Matias Myllyrinne tells GamesBeat
. "We wanted to bring in the skills that would help us and help me drive the company forward."
To do that, Remedy has brought on two new board members: Mike Capps, formerly president of Epic Games, and Christian Fredriksson, formerly chief executive of Finnish security firm F-Secure.
"We wanted to bring Christian on board for the very reason that he's not involved in the game industry," Myllyrinne explains. "He may challenge those some of conventions that we take for granted."
Remedy also brought aboard Petri Jarvilehto, who previously worked on Rovio's successful Angry Birds
, in 2011 to shore up its mobile-focused talent.
"We're one of the studios that has been successful in both [iOS and console]," says Myllyrinne. "It'll be interesting to see how those start to get closer in the future and where the overlaps are."
