DICE CEO leaves EA to go to Raw Fury

Former DICE CEO, Karl Magnus Troedsson, leaves EA to go to Indie company Raw Fury.

Indie publishing company Raw Fury has just added a new employee to their roster. The VP of Group Strategy at EA and CEO at Dice Sweden, Karl Magnus Troedsson has left his position of almost fifteen years to join the indie company.

In 2001, Karl joined DICE as a producer on Rallisport Challenge. This job led him to becoming the executive producer on the Battlefield series. These two experiences made him an excellent candidate to be the studio's VP GM and CEO in 2010. In 2013, he became the VP and Group GM at EA. There, he was responsible for all the games and services built out of DICE Stockholm, Los Angeles, Visceral Games, and other DICE operations. During this time he supported Star Wars Battlefront, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, and Battlefield 1.

 

Some may wonder why Karl left his job at big corporation for a small start up. In a blog post on Raw Fury's site they stated,

“When KM started in this industry he was a part of creating small games. He journeyed into the land of AAA and now returns, with a wealth of experience, to support those who are about to start their very own journey.”

He wants to get back to his roots and the reason why he got into the business in the first place. This new position also allows him to give back.

Karl comes into Raw Fury as a co – owner and partner. He has yet to select an official title. Since the company only has five employees, he will jump in as needed.

    Has a mini party!

    Fly DICE people! Fly... Break free from the chains of EA! Now, BioWare, Criterion, and Visceral big wigs need to do the same! (and bring a bunch of devs, artists etc along with ya)
