A dev blog was posted today by Ccp Zulu about what teams are working on what currently at CCP. Itâ€™s nice that they are sharing this information now, probably as a response to the release of the minutes of the CSM 5 meeting, which caused quite some turmoil.
We already knew that Incarna is the main focus for Eve at the moment, but 9 teams, 70 developers ? That sounds like itâ€™s a bit much. And we still donâ€™t know what weâ€™ll be able to do in Incarna. Just walking around a bit and play station games or will there be more ?
Also 10 for evegate is a large number. It doesnâ€™t look all that complicated to me. Then again my job is making business applications, which are mainly front ends for database manipulation, so maybe I am wrong and itâ€™s a lot more complicated than it looks.
Anyway, this all results in this:
In the 2011 winter expansion weâ€˜ll certainly focus more than ever before on iterating and polishing up all the features that EVE has expanded to in the then eight years. What those specific systems are, I donâ€˜t know as we havenâ€˜t started the planning phase for that yet.
Itâ€™s kinda tough to accept when itâ€™s actually â€˜written in stoneâ€™ like this. Basically development for Eve the Space Game has been halted for 18 months or so. And thatâ€™s just sad :(.
