EVE Online News – A Tale of Internet Spaceships to Premier on July 11th

Attendees at the EVE Online 2013 Fanfest were stars of an upcoming feature-length film called "A Talke of Internet Spaceships". According to information released today, the movie will premier in a live event in Sweden and will simultaneously be released worldwide for free via video hosting sites.

The documentary, filmed during a fan convention in Reykjavik in April 2013, aims to give an in-depth look at what makes EVE Online special and why people devote so much of their lives to it. This candid exploration of a video game community investigates the sometimes complicated relationship between EVE’s dedicated player base and the game’s developers, CCP Games. It also documents one of the most tumultuous times in the game’s lifespan – the release of the Incarna expansion – which turned out to be one of the most important moments in the history of online roleplaying games.

Find out more about the project on the A Tale of Internet Spaceships site.

EVE Online News – CCP Confirms Next Round of Layoffs

CCP Games has announced that forty-nine jobs have been lost in a restructuring move. According to GamesIndustry.biz (via Polygon), the layoffs are part of CCP's continuing focus on the EVE Universe and the jobs lost came from the publishing areas of the company and will not affect any of the games currently in development.

"As part of our strategy to focus on the EVE Universe, today CCP conducted a restructuring that resulted in the layoff of 49 people in our publishing organisation," the company told GamesIndustry International in a statement.

"Though it is hard to say goodbye to our friends and family, this action concludes the process we started several months ago. CCP has provided severance packages and job placement assistance for those affected. Development teams and plans for EVE Online, EVE: Valkyrie, DUST 514, and 'Project Legion' are not impacted by the restructuring."
