Last November, Eve Online developer CCP Games and real-world role-playing game creators White Wolf announced they had joined operations to bring their individual talents to each other's properties. Apparently to help facilitate that process, the Icelandic online game maker announced today that it will be setting up a North American shop in White Wolf's backyard--Stone Mountain, Georgia.
CCP Games plans to hire more than 100 massively multiplayer online game developers and designers in the next 12 months for the new studio, poignantly dubbed CCP North America. At the time of its merger, the game maker noted it would be developing a MMOG based on White Wolf's World of Darkness, a pen-and-paper and live-action RPG set in a fictional realm populated by vampires, werewolves, and other supernatural creatures, as well as ordinary humans going about their day-to-day lives.
CCP North America will officially open for business on October 12.
