Earlier this year, former Epic Games president Mike Capps announced that he was no longer going to be affiliated with the company in an advisory role as originally expected. He's since ended up on Alan Wake and Max Payne creator Remedy Entertainment's board of directors alongside F-Secure CEO Christian Fredriksson.

In an interview with GamesBeat, Remedy CEO Matias Myllyrinne said he believes "the industry is going through an incredible amount of uncertainty and risk, but on the other hand, we're seeing the cards being dealt again. There are plenty of new opportunities, both from a technological perspective and from a business perspective. For Remedy as a studio, we're at a stage where we felt it would be beneficial to bring in some more guidance."

Myllyrinne is certain that "If you create great quality content, your business will succeed. We have more audiences to attract with better technology and tools. The interesting things are what's going to happen between now and two or three years down the road. That's where we want to focus as company. We want to think a little longer-term, a little more ambitious, but still grounded in hard work and reality."
