Former RedLynx boss appointed CEO of Alan Wake dev, Remedy

Former RedLynx boss Tero Virtala has been appointed CEO of Alan Wake and Quantum Break developer, Remedy Entertainment.

Former RedLynx boss Tero Virtala has been appointed CEO of Alan Wake and Quantum Break developer, Remedy Entertainment. 

Virtala headed-up the Trials creator for 12 years, and will replace Remedy's interim CEO and co-founder, Markus Maki -- who will continue to oversee studio production.

The Finnish studio, also responsible for Max Payne, recently partnered with Korean game company Smilegate to co-develop the story mode for online shooter, Crossfire 2

Remedy's desire to branch out seems to be the driving force behind Virtala's appointment, with the company talking up his experience "working on a wide range of games, including smaller scale productions as well as service-based AAA."

Virtala was singing a similar tune, explaining he'd been brought in to oversee Remedy's transition into a multi-game studio

"Shifting gears into a new production model like this needs to be managed well," said the new CEO. 

"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."
