The Finnish video development company is expanding its company to gain more Nordic talent
Remedy Entertainment, the Finnish video game developers that have brought us games such as Alan Wake, Control, Max Payne, and most recently CrossfireX, has announced it will be opening a new studio in Sweden.
Due to the global pandemic, a lot of video game developers have had to make drastic changes to maintain work and keep safe, and Remedy Entertainment was no exception in this. Now it is transferring its hybrid work model to its Swedish subsidiary.

The video game developer announced on its website that the company has embraced a more hybrid model of working and that multiple Sweden–based senior game developers have joined the new studio working fully remotely from the “second-best Nordic country”. The developers have been led by Johnny Mang, the General Manager of the company’s Vanguard project since last year.
There were new job listings for Remedy Entertainment back in October, but the Finnish developer stated it is still looking to hire up to 25 developers in Sweden by the end of 2022. The company is planning to open a new workspace during the first half of 2022 for its Sweden-based developers so that they can meet together in the office when needed.
We understand that everyone is different, and has different needs, on different days. Some days are best spent focused, headphones on, working on something cool, whereas other days, such as when teams are working on planning, perhaps would benefit from in-person facetime. The hybrid model is about letting people choose the method that works best for them, on any given day.” – James Salt, Game Director.
Sweden is home to hundreds of video game companies as any enthusiastic gamer would know, so having Remedy Entertainment expand its offices to the likes of Stockholm is a great way of expanding the company. Remedy Entertainment recommends Sweden-based developers should keep an eye out for its Careers page to know when the company are hiring for its future projects.
