EVE Online lead designer Kritstoffer Touborg has announced on his Facebook page that he has decided to leave CCP to join Riot Games and work on League of Legends.
According to the post Touborg has worked at CCP for five years, but feels it is time to move on. “You can’t do the same thing forever and I feel like after more than five years, it’s time to try something new,” he wrote, in part. “So I’m packing my bags again and moving to Dublin, where I’ll be joining Riot games to work on League of Legends.”
“I feel a bit lucky that I get to work on not just one of my favorite games, but two of them. I don’t think I could have asked for anything more and it’s pretty humbling to go from one love to another. A few years ago, my overwhelming interest was the EVE universe; now it’s League of Legends and the competitive scene there.”
“To everyone at CCP, it’s been wonderful and I would happily do it all over again. To everyone at Riot, I’ll see you soon.”
