Tero Virtala, former CEO of Trials developer RedLynx, has been appointed as the new CEO of Remedy Entertainment, creators of Max Payne and Quantum Break.

Virtala replaces Remedy co-founder Markus Mäki, who served as the company’s chief executive for Quantum Break’s final year in development. According to Remedy, Mäki will now return to overseeing studio productions.

In a statement from Remedy Entertainment titled "New Remedy boss unlocked," Virtala said of the company:

At the core of Remedy are truly talented and passionate people, and their proven ability to create unique, world-class gaming experiences. As the company moves towards multiple simultaneous game projects, it will offer more opportunities for the gamers, our people, partners and us as a company.

This is Remedy’s second change of guard since 2015, when Matias Myllyrinne— who served as Remedy’s CEO for seven of his 15 years with the company— departed to join Cyprus-based World of Tanks developer Wargaming.

Remedy is currently developing a story mode for Crossfire 2, the upcoming sequel to one of the most-played online shooters in the world. The developer is also working on another undisclosed project unrelated to its previous IPs.
