Matias Myllyrinne has left Max Payne and Alan Wake developer, Remedy Entertainment, to join Wargaming. The company is best known for the tank combat game World Of Tanks.
In his open letter on Remedy’s website, Myllyrinne said that it was time for him to go and begin a new adventure. In an interview with GamesIndustry International he stated that he always liked AAA games but felt that he didn’t do anything new for a long time. Helsinki will always have a place in Matias’s heart, but the game developer is happy about the change of scenery.
Finland is the place where he lived for the longest period of his life. Nevertheless he is looking forward to moving to Cyprus. That’s where the Wargaming’s HQ is based. According to the ex-Remedy Entertainment employee, the departure will not affect the development of the Quantum Break video game. The release of the game was pushed to 2016 so the studio could come up with an adequate marketing strategy.
Myllyrinne said the release date was changed to avoid holiday market overflow in both the video game market and Microsoft’s portfolio. He believes that 2016 is a perfect runway for a new IP like Quantum Break. The additional time will be spent on polishing the project.
