Co-founder of Remedy asks “wherefore art thou Rovio?”

Petri Järvilehto, one of the co-founders of Remedy Entertainment, developers of the gritty Max Payne games as well as the recent Alan Wake, has left the company to work for another pioneer in violent videogames: Rovio Media, developers of the hit mobile game Angry Birds.

It’s not clear why he made the move, though it could be to satiate his ever-growing bloodlust (note: that’s probably not true, at all). Järvilehto’s new title at Rovio Media is Senior Vice President of Console Development, which ties in with the news that Angry Birds will be coming to the three major consoles in the near future.
