Matias Myllyrinne Stepping Down as CEO of Remedy Entertainment

Matias Myllyrinne has announced today that he will be stepping down as CEO of Remedy Entertainment.

Myllyrinne, who has been at Remedy for 15 years, explained in a farewell letter on Remedy’s website that “It is time for me to move on” and that it “is the right time to start another adventure.”

“I’m humbled by the continued support of our audience and fans,” Myllyrinne said. “It has sustained us in times of struggle and gives meaning to the work we do here every day.

“We have all grown up with games that have touched our hearts and left an imprint on our soul. It is these moments that we want to create for our fans… these lasting emotional impressions that stay with us for years. This is our mission, to build games with characters that could not be built anywhere else.”

Remedy Entertainment’s upcoming Xbox One-exclusive IP, Quantum Break, “looks amazing,” according to Myllyrinne, with the CEO praising the development team for creating a title that is “worthy of the Remedy brand.”

Myllyrinne also confirmed on Twitter that he would be joining Cyprus-based developer Wargaming, who are best known for creating free-to-play MMO titles like World of Tanks and World of Warplanes.

Since his arrival at Remedy in the late 1990s, Myllyrinne has overseen development on almost all of the developer’s notable titles, including Max Payne, Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne and Alan Wake.
