Mirror's Edge senior producer Owen O'Brien has joined CCP as executive producer of EVE: Valkyrie.
EVE: Valkyrie is being created at CCP's Newcastle studio and is a "multiplayer dogfighting shooter in the EVE universe that uses virtual reality to give the player the sense of being a real pilot in an EVE Online fighter".
"The opportunity to work with a focused, talented and passionate team at the forefront of game-changing technology is a dream scenario for me," O'Brien told GamesIndustry.
The game was most recently shown at PAX running with the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset.
"It's not just about the technology," O'Brien continued, "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 senior vice president of production at CCP Sean Decker.
"His experience bringing Mirror's Edge to market will be invaluable as we work to make virtual reality an actual reality for gamers worldwide."
