CCP Closing SF Office

The latest financial report from CCP (in Icelandic, Adobe Acrobat format) reveals the EVE Online developer is closing its San Francisco office, and parting ways with former chief marketing officer David Reid and chief financial officer Joe Gallo. CCP explains they are looking to "combine and simplify" some operations, and Reddit notes that translating the report suggests flat revenues played into the decision. Thanks Eurogamer.net.
And it is only going to get worse as Elite moves closer to release. Elite is the type of space game people have wanted for years. Eve Online was a good substitute...but just that: a substitute. If Elite launches in good shape, I expect to see Eve sub numbers crater rather quickly as all the "carebears" abandon the game, leaving the corp hardcore to fight it out in an increasingly empty universe.

PS: as if more proof is needed as to the mortal threat Elite will prove to be:

EVE has gotten progressively worse (if somewhat prettier) because of a few fundamental flaws in the design logic of the developers. Yes, the game has improved in many small ways, that's true. But it's gotten worse in many big ways because the developers have failed to properly address EVE's most nagging problems.

Mmm, missed this thread. Yeah, I quit EVE when CCP gave up.
