Jean-Charles Gaudechon brings his experience and leadership to CCP Games as executive producer for DUST 514
CCP Games, the world’s leading independent developer of massively multiplayer games, today announced that veteran game producer Jean-Charles Gaudechon has been hired as the executive producer of DUST 514, CCP’s groundbreaking, free-to-play first-person shooter on PlayStation 3. Gaudechon will drive future development of the persistent-world first-person-shooter DUST 514 at CCP’s Shanghai studio.
Gaudechon brings his expertise to CCP following his time as executive producer at publisher Electronic Arts in Stockholm, Sweden where he oversaw the development and service of Battlefield: Play4free and Battlefield Heroes, expanding the Battlefield franchise into the free-to-play realm. Prior to that, Gaudechon led the development and launch of EA’s online racing MMO Need for Speed World, taking the scope of the hit racing franchise beyond the console experience.
“In addition to his extensive experience in the free-to-play space, Jean-Charles brings a tremendous sense of product vision and creativity to DUST 514,” said Sean Decker, senior vice-president of product development at CCP. “His track record of developing major online titles will serve the growth of DUST 514 very well.” Launched in May, DUST 514 is a massively multiplayer first-person shooter, exclusive to the PlayStation 3, with unmatched persistence and customization where you play in the notorious sci-fi universe of EVE Online.
