First to actually read it.

And I'm worried.

PS: after seeing that they're actually making a public job offer for that post, I'm not worried. I'm in panic. Ugh

PPS: well, after regaining my cold blood (?) i'm ready to elaborate...

First, mobile strategy? Sorry CCP, but you're late for that. Once you get up to speed with that mobile target, insert-your-fav-tech will be killing the PC again.

Second, who in heavens tells so broadly that their core product is headless and looking for a hired brain?

Third, what kind of production strategy can be fully implemented in a few longer than 18 months? Answer: none. Which tells a lot on why we've been gettting the best non-expansive expansions in the history of EVE.

I'm distressed, frankly. I already feared that CCP was behind the power curve, and now they're talking about offlining a cylinder and replace it inflight...Ugh

Admittedly, I would laugh my ass off if the new EP was some Gianturco dude, though. Lol

Just wanted to thank CCP Unifex for his fantastic service, and wish him all the best in his new role. Also, I will be buying him many drinks at fanfest...

CSM was informed of this change a few days ago in a meeting with Jon Lander and Hilmar. We will of course be closely following the transition in order to help ensure that EVE continues to develop along the path Jon laid out, which has been greatly responsible for a string of successful and increasingly ambitious expansions.

Whoever next takes up the reins will have big shoes to fill.

EVE nose dive in 5... 4... 3...
Let's just hope they get someone as good as him, and not someone who is looking to make money at the expense of what EVE actually is. Also can't we have T0rfi do it?

Obligatory EVE is dying comment.

I am sorry to hear that you are worried but I think you may be worrying unnecessarily.

Please feel free to tune in to our next CCP Videocast on Tuesday, April 16 which will feature CCP Unifex, CCP Seagull, CCP Ripley and CCP t0rfifrans who will be on hand to answer questions and, hopefully, put your mind at ease Smile

Are you implying that there could be a worse "game" than what PI already is?

Thank you Mr. Lander for a job well done.

Executive producer -> mobile strategy something does not exactly sound like a promotion. That he remains with CCP however suggests that he hasn't fallen out with the CEO or is disgruntled with CCP. Pretty confusing.

Very unconventional though for the CEO to announce it at this point and to invite people from the community to apply. Big ups for that! Always cool to see CCP do things no other big company would do.

so someone from outside of CCP, probably without any EVE knowledge/mindset, will become new executive producer? :-/

I hope the new EP does as good as a job as Jon did - he has some big shoes to fill. I'm actually a bit sad to see him leave this role but I'm sure he'll do great things with the mobile division.

While getting outside talent may be a good thing, I do hope it is someone with a thorough knowledge of Eve Online. Jon had first hand Eve Online knowledge from being a player, and I believe knowing the game and it's community are must have skills for an executive producer. Eve is too complex a game to executively produce for someone who doesn't know it's ins and outs.

I'm not worried. A key part of the last year and a bit has been making sure that EVE doesn't rely on a single person. Now we have a great team leading up development in CCP Seagul and CCP Ripley along with all the other devs who have been around for ages (and some rather spiffy new devs Big smile ). I have every faith in these people to carry on doing amazing things and I know we will only put in a great person into the EP role.

And thank you!

Who cares about promotions, it's all about doing amazing things with great people and pushing the boundaries. Big smile We will still do that with EVE, we are doing it with DUST 514 and all of our projects will break new ground.

Interesting update. I'm not too worried either. As long as they burn Adam Orth's resume I think it'll be fine. Smile Best of luck in your search of applicants!
