EVE Online: EA Veteran Joins CCP

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,572MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

CCP Games has announced that former EA executive Sean Decker has joined the team. Decker will take the reins as CCP's Senior Vice President for Product Development.

Prior to his time leading EA’s “Play4Free” group, Decker served as vice president and general manager at DICE, where he oversaw the Battlefield and Mirror’s Edge franchises, and at EA’s Los Angeles studio, where he directed the Medal of Honor and Command & Conquer franchises.

    Now this is either going to be seen as "he hated EA so he left to join a company he respects". Or "CCP is hiring him to bring EA kinda profits and ruin the company".

    No.. No no no... World of Darkness just went into the toilet. They are bringing EA and EA tactics in for WoD...

    It should be thrown with great force"

    Might sound harsh but EA needs to be dismantled and everyone that worked for EA exiled into space to a different world far far away. Not liking this decision, I don't know much of the facts on this guy but my blind hate works for now.

    After you finish slogging through F2P hell you'll feel differently about subs.  I just started playing EVE a little while ago and it's so nice not being slapped in the face with a gdamn cash shop every time try to do anything in a game. Iit's well worth the monthly cost, which is less than going to the movies once a month.

    Besides, EVE does have a kind of F2P option. You just gotta make enough money in game.  Which I hear isn't that hard to do once you play for awhile.

    I'd be surprised if they did; they lowered the UK sub for 1/3 a couple of years ago.

    CCP, it was nice knowing you.  You are about to fall to the Dark Side with an EA employee (former or not) on your payroll.  CASH SHOP AWAY!

    I would hope he goes to EVE and stays away from World of Darkness. My hopes for MMO's rests on that game, lol.

    i love how everyone thinks that if you work at ea you're evil. hasn't it been shown, and said, over and over again that it's ea's corporate nature that is so horrible, not the people who work there? honestly, everyone who posts in this thread saying that one guy who used to work at ea is contaminating ccp ought to be ashamed of themselves. oh, you worked at mcdonalds? well i'm not going to eat that salad you just made in your own house because it must be full of salt, fat, and calories. i mean. you worked at mcdonalds, and you and your employer are obviously alike in every way. jeez.

    He is being brought in for work on Dust 514. WoD is a lost cause.

    If they switch EVE F2P with cash shop, I be mad. Now if he works on DUST514, I have no problems with that  at all xD

    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-04-27-shining-a-light-on-ccps-world-of-darkness   this states it is still being worked on - though no beta has been announced and the release will not be before 2015. It is as of April this  year.

    On positive note if the guy ruin WoD vampires will hunt him down. :D

    @ElderRat

    I was rather hoping I could repeatedly terrorize, as only a true Chile of Malkav can, any poor sod that chose to name their character "Edward" or "Bella."

    Edit: Because the "reply" button doesn't seem to be doing its job.

    THis is the worst idea in the history of ccp,

     

    STUFF OFF EA !!!

     

    EA is always the first sign of cancer in any game company. Look what happened to bio-ware.

    Sumhow they manage to kill all creativity. I know he is not with ea anymore , but still......

    In other related news, CCP is hiring Kenneth Lay as COO, Bernie Madoff as Senior Accounting Director, Joseph Kony to head Human Resources, Glenn Beck as Lead Community Manager, and just for good measure, is putting Lil Wayne in charge of redoing all of EVE's music.

     

    What could possibly go wrong?!

    I suggest they be buried alive on Ceti Alpha Five.
