Sony Computer Entertainment has hired Creative Assembly’s design director to expand its virtual reality team.

Gary Napper will leave his role as design director at the Alien: Isolation studio and take on a new role at Sony working on the Project Morpheus headset for PlayStation 4, according to GamaSutra.

Napper’s VR experience includes a number of experiments with the Oculus Rift, including a virtual reality demo of Alien: Isolation – which Develop was lucky enough to playtest last year.
