Arrowhead Game Studios Appoints New CEO

Arrowhead CEO

Arrowhead Game Studios, the developer behind the critically acclaimed Helldivers series, has undergone a significant change in leadership. After 15 years at the helm, Johan Pilestedt, the studio’s founder and CEO, has announced his decision to step down from his role. 

This move comes as Pilestedt seeks to refocus his efforts on game creation, handing over the duties to Shams Jorjani, a seasoned industry veteran with a background in business development.

Johan Pilestedt’s departure from the CEO position marks a critical moment for Arrowhead Game Studios. 

But while Pilestedt may be relinquishing his CEO title, he remains committed to Arrowhead Game Studios as its chief creative officer and chairman. This shift allows him to devote more time and energy to the creative aspects of game development, a passion that has been overshadowed by administrative responsibilities in recent years.

His replacement Shams Jorjani brings a wealth of experience. With a background in business development and a proven track record at Paradox Interactive, Jorjani aims to provide strong leadership and strategic direction for the studio’s future endeavors.

While the transition in leadership may bring about uncertainty, there is optimism surrounding Arrowhead Game Studios’ future. With the successful launch of Helldivers 2 and plans for future projects, the studio remains poised for continued success under Jorjani’s leadership.
