Game veteran invests in new game studio Hatrabbit
One of Sweden’s most established gaming profiles on the global stage, Karl Magnus Troedsson, invests in the newly launched game studio Hatrabbit. Troedsson has previously been General Manager and CEO of DICE, VP of Group Strategy for EA, and is now also co-owner of the game publisher Raw Fury. Together they will now focus on strengthening the team and building the entertainment of the future.
Hatrabbit Entertainment was founded in 2016 by two game veterans, Joakim Svärling and Andreas Chryssovitsanos. Both have 17 years of experience from DICE, EA and Rovio. They have been part of creating some of the world’s largest PC and mobile franchise games like Battlefield and Angry Birds. Hatrabbit builds game experiences that utilize the latest virtual and augmented reality technology. There are already technically advanced games, but the studio’s strength lies in delivering world-class quality and adding feelings and magical mood to the games.
– I have worked closely with these guys for many years, says Karl Magnus Troedsson. I know their capacity and what their capable of doing and in the same way they know me. When they described their vision and the question was raised about making the journey together, I did not need much consideration time.
Now the focus is on building next-generation games.
– During the spring, we have focused on building a strong foundation for the studio, said Andreas Chryssovitsanos. Building a strong team and at the same time securing this investment has been our top priority. Therefore, it is extremely valuable to now have Karl Magnus on board. We have also strengthened the development team with Urban Nilsson, who is a partner in the Hatrabbit team.
– Our goal in the coming year is to broaden the game portfolio, find interesting partners and learn as much as possible about the market, says Joakim Svärling.
Hatrabbit Entertainment was the first company to be accepted to Sting’s gaming incubator in at Medborgarplatsen in Stockholm.
