Head of Angry Birds 2 developer temporarily replaced by creative director Patrick Liu

Rovio Stockholm GM resigns

Oskar Burman has stepped down from his position as GM of Rovio Stockholm.

Burman joined the newly-founded team in 2012, having previously served as GM and head of Easy Studios for publisher EA.

“I’ve resigned from Rovio – but can’t speak yet of the next step in my journey,” Burman tweeted.

He also revealed that current creative director Patrick Liu will serve as acting GM while the studio searches for a new head.

“All in all, these four years have been a blast, building Rovio Stockholm up from scratch – assembling one of the best teams I’ve ever worked with,” continued Burman.

“It’s one of the sharpest mobile game teams in the industry, expect amazing stuff in the future.

“More stuff I’m proud of: Our inclusive studio culture. Our process using game jams systematically to ideate. Our next game. Our fan feedback.”
