Scott’s CCP days saw him serving as lead desinger and design director for the studio’s two major titles, Eve Online and Dust 514. Prior to his work at CCP, Scott spent time with Core Design (Tomb Raider) and Realtime Worlds (All Points Bulletin).

"Bigpoint has major experience in the future sector of free-to-play, online games," Scott said.

"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."
