The Russian gaming company Astrum Entertainment has replaced its CEO. From now on, it is headed by Alexey Izotov, who in the past held key positions in the VK gaming block (formerly Mail.ru Group), including the position of head of publishing and game development. He came to replace Sergei Efremov, who is now the company’s chief operating officer.
“Alexey Izotov held key positions within the gaming block of Mail.ru Group, including the position of head of publishing and game development for PCs and consoles. In his positions, Alexey took part in bringing large gaming projects to the market and gained extensive experience working with foreign partners, including from Asian countries,” the announcement says.
“The industry in Russia is undergoing global changes, and we, as the largest and most experienced player, will be able to stand at the forefront of active market growth. Astrum Ent has assembled a strong team, and with it I will be able to apply my experience in working with European and Asian companies. We plan to continue offering world-class hits to the gaming community,” said Alexey Izotov.
Let us recall that in 2022, Astrum Entertainment began to receive on a non-cash basis part of the gaming assets of My.Games, which left the Russian market. In particular, the company distributes such projects as Warface, Perfect World, Lost Ark, Revelation, Battle Teams 2, Atomic Heart and many others in Russia.
