[gamasutra] Scott Hartsman returns to TRION as CEO

Outgoing CEO and Trion Worlds co-founder Lars Buttler remains attached to the studio as a member of the board, a Trion representative was able to confirm for Gamasutra. However, his new role has not yet been defined.

In an email to the company, Hartsman said: "We're going to rapidly be laying the groundwork for a new strategy at Trion -- one that's closer to the foundation of how we've had our wins so far, and then extending that base into the enduring success this company can, and will, be."

reading into that and his history, TRION didn't do any better as a F2P company/publisher and they obviously made less money than when they just had rift and ~100k subs going and it's time to do a 180. I won't be suprised if Defiance shuts down by next summer.

"We can confirm that the San Diego studio will be closing," an official statement reads. "The day to day operations of Defiance will be moved to our Redwood City studio where it can be managed alongside Rift and our other in-development titles including ArcheAge and End of Nations. As part of this transition, we are working hard to ensure that a number of great people will be making the move from San Diego to the Bay Area and continue their work at Trion."
