Earlier this week, Telltale Games named Pete Hawley as the new CEO of the company, taking over for co-founder Dan Connors. Prior to Telltale, Hawley was the co-founder/CEO of Red Robot Labs before he ended up working for companies like Zynga, EA, and CrowdStar. He was also partially responsible for the awesome Lionhead Studios titles Black & White and Fable where he worked with developer Peter Molyneux. Below is a statement Hawley released via Telltale about his new position.
I am a huge fan of all Telltale Games and what they’ve achieved as a company in becoming the leading storytellers in gaming under the leadership of Dan and Kevin. I look forward to working closely with Telltale Games’ talented team, industry leading IP and partners to drive new ways to bring players together in innovative and exciting game content. Telltale is unique, and I’m thrilled to be a part of its amazing future.
