“The primary goal of the expansion in March is to add to the players’ experience and everyone in Iceland and in Atlanta is focused on this right now,” said Eyjolfur Gudmundsson, CCP Games’ lead economist. “We will allow players to construct their spaceships differently … there will be more customization."

I don't think you could pay me any amount to live in the southeast or deep south (no offense, southerners).

Also, I wish Sun had given me a freaking sword after ten years with the company. That would have been far cooler than what I actually got (a choice of any item from some catalog that only had stuff normal people would want like crystal bowls and watches and golf clubs and sculptures and crap).

But then

"After the release of Eve Online’s expansion in March, the company will focus on creating another multi-player game based on the popular World of Darkness fictional universes created by White Wolf."

But like has been said before, the same teams won't be working on both necessarily. CCP is dedicated to EVE and isn't simply going to let their cash-cow foil away in favor of some new more traditional style RPG. I have zero concerns where this is heading.

Yeah, CCP will focus on creating the wod mmo as the march exspansion will have tackled the lions share of the heavy work in updating eve for modern computers. All the rest is just shifting numbers around till they balance and plugging up any exploits or bugs and that can be accomplished by a small core team. This leaves all the other employees who do all the artwork and coding guys who write the engine can start making vampires and olde worlde villages. Its a pretty good buisiness plan really. Justify all the extra help to update eve and then instead of laying loyal employees off when its all done use them instead to create a brand new mmo. ugh

yes

after pouring months and months of effort into their largest expansion ever, it will be live on the servers for a 10day period. This 10day period will be promptly followed by a 48hour downtime-free armageddon-day scenario and then, promptly on the ides of march, eve will be shut down forever and ever.

how did you not hear about this!?!? Neutral

Hmmm ... I thought they were working full force on Ambulation then. Or is that meant, somehow it sounds different.

Yup. Its not exactly the NASDAQ or Nikkei, probably a better analogy would be the pre-television era DOW Indusrials.

No worries. Gross misrepresentation of facts on the ground here. There is a massive army of people that will work on Walking in Stations and other EVE features once the March expansion is out the door.

I knew it! CCP is going to annex Atlanta in the name of Iceland to solve the economic crisis. With the Delta hub in their hands, Iceland will become unstoppable. Shocked

edit: Also, page 2! Cool
