Owen O’Brien, former Senior Producer on 2008′s DICE-produced Mirror’s Edge has been hired by CCP as Executive Producer for their upcoming EVE spinoff, entitled EVE: Valkyrie.
O’Brien was responsible for much of the success in Mirror’s Edge‘s direction and execution. To date, whilst the game has sold an arguably meager amount of two million copies across a variety of platforms, it has maintained a cult following that eventually led to the now greenlit and in-development sequel.
EVE: Valkyrie, formerly titled, EVE: VR is a cockpit perspective space-shooter which will utilize the Oculus Rift technology. The team at CCP based their reasoning for hiring O’Brien on his diligence and tenacity in bringing Mirror’s Edge to the market.
