Quantum Break studio welcomes Tero Virtala

Finnish developer Remedy Entertainment has appointed a new CEO in Tero Virtala, formerly the CEO of RedLynx.

"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," he said.

"Shifting gears into a new production model like this needs to be managed well. 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. I am excited and honored to be part of Remedy."

Virtala worked at RedLynx between November 2002 and April 2015. He's also a board member at Apped and was CEO of River Saga.
