Gaudechon’s job will be to “drive future development of the persistent-world first-person shooter” at the firm’s Shanghai studio.

Gaudechon previously also led development on Need for Speed World.

“In addition to his extensive experience in the free-to-play space, Jean-Charles brings a tremendous sense of product vision and creativity to DUST 514,” said Sean Decker, SVP of product development at CCP. “His track record of developing major online titles will serve the growth of DUST 514 very well.”
