Trion Worlds appoints former CCO as new CEO

Trion Worlds names new CEO

Trion Worlds, the developer behind games like Rift and Defiance, has appointed its former chief creative officer, Scott Hartsman, to the role of chief executive officer effective immediately, according to a statement.

Scott Hartsman was formerly the executive producer on Rift and CCO of Trion Worlds. He resigned from the studio in January of this year, saying that he'd had an amazing time "working with some of the best developers anywhere, getting the company's first game off the ground, taking it all the way through a multitude of amazing updates, then to Storm Legion, and even a little beyond."

In an email to the company sent out today, Hartsman said: "We're going to be laying the groundwork for a new strategy for Trion — one that's closer to the foundation of how we've had our wins so far, and then extending that base into the enduring success this company can, and will, be."
