Discussing the current global financial crisis with GamesIndustry.biz CCP Games' CEO Hilmar Petrusson reassured fans that the company is not in danger during these turbulent times. The company is the developer of the sci-fi MMO EVE Online and recently announced work on Quantum Rise, another expansion for the game.
"CCP is fortunate enough to be well isolated from the current banking crisis we see around us on both sides of the Atlantic (and here in the middle of it, of course)," he said. "Not only do we enjoy the privilege of a global customer base bringing a diverse array of cultural influences into our single shard world of EVE Online, but that same diverse nature inoculates us from short-term fluctuations in sentiment or economic turbulence.Click the link below to read the full article.
GamesIndustry.biz: CCP 'Well Isolated'
"We have also made an effort to work with various financial institutions around the world, giving us the agility needed to manage our global operations around the effects of the credit crunch.
"The effects of this manmade financial storm have hit Iceland pretty hard, but don't worry about us. Icelanders are sturdy and tenacious by nature. There will still be fun times in Reykjavik regardless.
"Tough times never last, tough people do. Iceland is full of tough people, the rest died off centuries ago. While the world's bank bubble deflates (hopefully in a more orderly fashion than we have seen so far), we here at CCP focus on our own economy."
