David Braben given OBE in Queen's Birthday Honours

Elite co-creator thanks the team at Frontier Developments

Frontier's David Braben is now David Braben OBE after being named in the Queen's Birthday Honours list.

Braben's achievements stretch right back to the very origins of the British games industry, specifically with his role in the creation of the pioneering space sim Elite. He is also the founder and the CEO of Frontier Developments, one of the UK's biggest independent developers, and a trustee of the Raspberry Pi Foundation.

Responding to the news on Twitter, Braben was quick to mention his team at Frontier Developments, with whom he wishes to share the honour.
