CEO Ola Holmdahl Leaves Tarsier Studios

Tarsier Studios, known for Little Big Planet™ PS Vita and upcoming title Little Nightmares, sees Ola Holmdahl leaving the company after being CEO for three consecutive years.

“I feel strongly for Tarsier,” says Ola Holmdahl. “During my time as CEO, the company has grown from a third-party supplier into a company that produces its own games. I am particularly proud to have created conditions for the development of Little Nightmares.”

Magnus Lindsten, Chairman of the Board says, “We are happy with Ola’s accomplishments during his years as CEO at Tarsier. We have successfully moved to creating original games and evolved into a multi-project studio. However, the board’s and Ola’s views on the future of the company are no longer aligned and therefore the parties have decided to part ways.”

Andreas Johnsson, Deputy CEO and Co-Founder, will step in as Interim CEO until further notice.
