Mirror’s Edge producer Owen O’Brien has joined CCP as the executive producer on the firm’s Oculus Rift game, EVE: Valkyrie.
O’Brien formerly lead production on Mirror’s Edge at DICE.
“The opportunity to work with a focused, talented and passionate team at the forefront of game-changing technology is a dream scenario for me,” said O’Brien. “But it’s not just about the technology. This was a project born out of a genuine passion for gaming, and that shows in what the team has already achieved.”
“I worked with Owen for many years at DICE,” added Sean Decker, SVP production at CCP. “His experience bringing Mirror’s Edge to market will be invaluable as we work to make virtual reality an actual reality for gamers worldwide.”
EVE: Valkyrie is scheduled for a 2014 launch.
