Former Electronic Arts chief executive John Riccitiello has been appointed CEO of Unity Technologies. What can Unity customers expect from this surprising move?
“John’s new role as CEO won’t have much effect on users,” explains Unity co-founder and former CEO David Helgason to Nordic Game, “and certainly not in the short-term. John has been very active on our board over the past year, and thus been very involved in planning our strategy.”
“John now takes over primary responsibility for execution of (our) plan,” adds Helgason. “So his role is to help us become an even better company, but with the same goals as always: to democratise game development and to be a fantastic partner for the industry in general and game developers specifically.”
