Sorry, but if any company other than CCP becomes this game's 'owner', they can count me 100% out. Especially if it's Chris Roberts.

What can happen after sale?

Who is the potential buyer of a game company with VR and space MMO experience? And why?

"CCP" haven't owned CCP for a long time. The company has been majority owned by private investors for years.

For now its "people said, considering"

And I would want them to be bought by someone who have a lot of $ and see potential in WIS.

Like you have something to say about who will own EVE

Eve is a product and it will never be any thing else.

I didn't say I had a say about who ran EVE. I said I wouldn't play it if it was anyone but CCP.

No, they took the company off the exchange.
They're in a much stronger position than they were then (or at least it seems so from here)
By putting it back they're looking to kick up some more money
Put the torches and pitchforks away lads, nothing to freak out about yet.

A product is only as valuable as its consumer interest. We're talking about a community that did the Jita Riots over ******* monocles.
