Reboot Develop has finalised the speakers for its 2018 show, adding Paradox Interactive's Fred Wester, IGDA head Jen McLean, and Housemarque's Ilari Kuittinen to the line-up.
All three have been in the headlines recently: Wester for his decision to step down as CEO of Paradox, making way for Ebba Ljungerud; McLean in a recent interview with GamesIndustry.biz, in which she discussed issues around unionisation; and Kuittinen for Housemarque's decision to leave the shoot-em up genre following disappointing sales of Nex Machina.
Other new speakers for the Dubrovnik-based conference include Funomena CEO Robin Hunicke, Splash Damage CEO Paul Wedgwood, and Funcom CEO Rui Manuel Monteiro Casais. The full and final speaker line-up can be found on the Reboot Develop website.
