One-time Playfish vice president of global studios Jami Laes has taken up a new role at Angry Birds developer Rovio. GamesIndustry reports Laes has been appointed executive vice president of games, heading up the games division, and replacing former incumbent Petri J√§rvilehto, who is moving on. Both sides gave some typical press release quotes about how much they adore each other and how swimmingly they’re going to get on. Meanwhile, Playfish looks to have been broken up and absorbed by EA.
