Devolver Digital has announced that its CEO Douglas Morin has stepped down.
Morin joined the publisher and developer in 2020 as chief of staff, and was appointed CEO in 2021.
The company has now stated that Morin has stapped down, however, “as part of planning for Devolver’s long-term growth and development”.
Morin will replaced by Harry Miller, a Devolver co-founder who had served as the company’s CEO in the past.
In an official statement, Miller said: “On behalf of the Board and everyone at Devolver, I would like to thank Douglas for his significant commitment and achievements at Devolver in the last four years.
“Douglas’ energy, leadership and determination were critical to our IPO and programme to build our infrastructure as a listed company, culminating in the exciting System Era acquisition.
“I am excited by the opportunity to step back into the CEO role. It’s an incredible pleasure and honour to continue to work with Devolver’s fantastic and talented team, building out a strong pipeline of fun and creativity, and of course delivering on our long-term growth strategy.”
Devolver’s planned releases for 2024 include The Plucky Squire, Skate Story, Pepper Grinder and Anger Foot. Today it also revealed Children of the Sun, a “sniper puzzle game” where players control each bullet fired (the trailer for which can be seen above).
Earlier today it was confirmed that Devolver-owned studio Artificer had laid off half its staff, amounting to 28 people – 18 effective immediately and the other 10 after their current project is completed.
The company also stated that its revenue in 2023 was “in line with consensus expectations”.
