After a long and fruitful career with CCP and EVE Online, Kristoffer Toubourg is moving to Riot Games. EVE Online's lead designer is indeed jumping ship! The five-year stint spent with CCP in Iceland is ending for Toubourg as he makes his way to Riot in Dublin to work on the insanely popular League of Legends.
PCGamer reports the departure via Polygon, with a word with Toubourg himself on the move: “I feel a bit lucky that I get to work on not just one of my favorite games, but two of them. I don’t think I could have asked for anything more and it’s pretty humbling to go from one love to another. A few years ago, my overwhelming interest was the EVE universe; now it’s League of Legends and the competitive scene there.”
Good luck to Kristoffer, and we're looking forward to seeing what he can bring to Riot Games in the coming years.
