Even with massive downsizing and the end of its virtual reality ambitions, CCP hasn’t quite thrown in the towel just yet.
One of our tipsters noticed that the studio is hiring a lead designer for “a new and highly ambitious MMORPG,” suggesting that CCP hasn’t given up on looking past EVE Online to the future. The untitled game in question is being made in CCP’s London studio with a small, dedicated crew.
“We are looking to grow a relatively small, tight-knit team, capable of delivering big ideas through experience, smart process, and world-class tools,” CCP said. “We are looking for a new lead designer to join this growing team, responsible for leading a small team of experienced designers in the development and execution of our game design.”
This game could be one of two known titles in development, the EVE first-person shooter spin-off Project Nova or the mobile Project Aurora. Alternatively, it could be an entirely new MMO, which presents all sorts of exciting possibilities.
