Former CCP design director Craig Scott has joined Bigpoint as lead designer.

He was hired by CCP as a lead designer in 2010, but by the end of 2011 he had been promoted to design director for the entire EVE Online team.

"I am happy to be with Bigpoint now," Scott said in a statement. "Bigpoint has major experience in the future sector of free-to-play, online games. Furthermore, I expect to have much space for trying new things, which is a premise for making really innovative games and which, of course, means a lot of fun for both the teams and the users. That's what I see Bigpoint is currently about."

Bigpoint CEO Khaled Helioui confirmed that Scott has been brought into the company to work on, "a new breed of MMO."
