Oskar Burman, GM of Rovio Stockholm, has announced his resignation on Twitter. The studio's creative director, Patrick Lui, will step in as acting GM for the time being.
Burman, who previously worked for Avalanche Studios and EA, was hired by the Angry Birds creator back in August 2012 to build out its new studio from scratch. Four years on, Burman feels it's a case of mission accomplished.
"I’ve resigned from Rovio - but can’t speak yet of the next step in my journey," Burman tweeted. "All in all, these four years have been a blast, building Rovio Stockholm up from scratch.
"[I'm] proud of launching some spectacular games, with Angry Birds 2 probably being the highlight of my career so far. I’m proud of our inclusive studio culture, our process using game jams systematically to ideate, our next game, and our fan feedback."
