The Finnish giant continues to storm. Over the past few days, Rovio has been receiving the third news about serious changes in the company’s management staff.
Recall that on Friday it became known that the president of Rovio Mikael Hed (Mikael Hed) in January next year will give up his place to the former vice president of marketing of Nokia Pekka Rantala (Pekka Rantala). Bloomberg considered that the reason for Head’s departure is the extremely low income of last year.
A couple of hours ago we wrote that Antti Sonninen, who was responsible for Rovio’s policy in Japan, lost his place. Based on this, it can be assumed that Rovio plans to focus its efforts in Asia, where its position cannot be called stable.
And here’s another loss. Kalle Kaivola, head of development and publishing at Rovio Entertainment, announced on Facebook that he was leaving his post.
On his Facebook page, Kalle Kayvola shared the news that he was leaving Rovio. The former head of the development and publishing department of Rovio Entertainment becomes part of the Helsinki GameWorks team. He noted that the years spent at Rovio were “a great time.” Kalle Kayvola does not disclose the reasons for his departure.
Nothing is known about the new studio yet, except what is said on the main page of its website. Helsinki GameWorks positions itself as a developer of mobile games, driven by an ambitious goal – to introduce users to the novelties of the mobile gaming industry and expand the boundaries of the concept of “free-to-play game”.
