Today it was my solemn duty to post an announcement from CCP. You can read that announcement here.

Please keep your discussion of the announcement to this thread if possible, and understand that this and the days in the future are going to be very difficult for those at CCP. We stand behind our decisions and trust that it will ultimately bring you, the EVE community, a better game.

To be honest I thought this would happen.. Eve seems to be doing alright (despite all the "eve is dead" speech) but I never really believed they could support two other large developments at the same time - especially not whilst developing DUST 514 which is entering an extremely competitive games market. I think it's is a good thing to be reallocating assets and cutting back production on the vampire MMO, since the attention and assets are quite simply needed elsewhere. Shame about people losing their jobs though, I wish them all the best.

Shocked No content? Troll???

Edit: After reading the link in the updated post, I wish everybody at CCP the best. Your management should have seen this comming, but still, unemployment is the last thing I wish for anyone.

My sympathies to the staff you are losing in Atlanta. However, I believe that you have taken the right decision for the longer term. Hard choices are best made before they get even harder.

Shocked I didnt see this coming at all Shocked

Is there no way to *re-devote* these hiries to other projects? Clothes or WIS that is short staffed now due to the refocus on FIS? I am certain that their work inside the company has exposed them to some of these activites and a train up period for them should be shorter and cheaper for the company overall in the end.

wrong answer... Dust 514 moves forward... WoD moves forward with a smaller staff.

Good move CCP, focus on the game that made your company!

My condolences to those who are receiving pink slips as part of this.

HOLY MOTHER OF GOD!! Shocked

They are pushing WoD into the backburner, wil be firing people hired for WoD and refocusing the remaining teams on EVE and Dust 514. Shocked

WoD is still in pre-production stage so you cant even call it "stopped".
Well I hope someday at least my children will play WoD because I will be more like old fart in 2015+
Besides companies like Lizzard and Bethesda will totally ruin MMO market and genre until that moment.

My sympathies go out to those affected by the job losses - I hope that you all get things sorted out quickly.

The reasons are valid I think.
A bit sad that it will take WoD even longer to get out but atleast it will still get worked on and that's much better then it being cancelled.
And sad to hear about the people being fired. Hopefully they will be picked up by another studio.

Best decission ever.

But Dust and WoD are failures from the beginning anyway, so just stop the crap.

Here's hoping that any and all employment challenged CCPers find a job quickly and without too much hardship on themselves and their family.

Good luck.

I'm waiting on the winter expansion to re-sub my other two accounts, but to me, this is good news/bad news.

Good news for Eve, bad news for those affected. I wish *all* CCP employees the best.

I hope that the people losing their jobs in this difficult economic climate are able to rebound quickly.

Although as an EVE player I am happy to see CCP focus, it is still a difficult thing to see people lose their jobs.
