CCP Newcastle opens, works on Dust 514

Tuesday, 29th June 2010 10:54 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Icelandic developer CCP has announced that its new UK studio, based in Newcastle, is open for business.

The outfit, housed in Gateshead Quays, will help out CCP Asia on the firm’s console-based MMOFPS, Dust 514, which ties in with CCP’s major concern, MMO EVE Online.

It will also collaborate on all console projects for the developer from here on out.

“The decision to establish a UK studio was an easy one for CCP,” said technical director, Richard Smith.

“The North East has a distinguished heritage of game development, an experienced console-development talent pool and local universities producing exceptional graduates.

“We have been able to assemble a world-class team of console developers with unparalleled Unreal Engine expertise and integrate them with CCP’s global organization.”

The formation of the studio was announced back in February, while Dust 514 was announced at gamescom last August.

    Is this MMOFPS Dust 514 has anything to do with the Eric Chahi’s Project Dust, shown on E3?
