Redmond-based WildTangent said today it has hired A.J. Redmer away from Microsoft Game Studios. Redmer, who was most recently the general manager of MGS Asia, will become the executive vice president of WildTangent Studios. WildTangent develops and publishes online games, mostly ones that fall into the casual game category.
Redmer oversaw the development of Microsoft-branded gaming products, and before that he worked at Nintendo and Lucasfilm Games.
