Nordgren Promoted to Lead Ongoing Development of CCP’s Award-Winning Sci-Fi MMO
REYKJAVIK, ICELAND – July 25, 2014 – CCP Games, a leading independent developer of massively multiplayer games, today announced that EVE Online® Senior Producer Andie “CCP Seagull” Nordgren has been promoted to the role of executive producer for EVE Online, the groundbreaking, sci-fi online game with hundreds of thousands of subscribers worldwide. In her new role, Nordgren will oversee all aspects of EVE Online’s production from the company’s Reykjavik headquarters.
Nordgren was appointed executive producer following four years at CCP Games, most recently in the role of senior producer for EVE Online. Having joined CCP in 2010 as a technical producer in the Core Technology Group, she championed the new server technology that made it possible to connect EVE Online and DUST 514®. She went on to serve as a senior technical producer before being named senior producer for EVE Online. During her tenure as senior producer, Nordgren was responsible for EVE Online’s product vision and roadmap, and oversaw the development team’s transition from two expansions per year to 10 releases annually in an effort to deliver more content, more frequently, to EVE Online’s famed community.
“It gives me great joy and confidence that Andie has accepted this challenge. Over the years I have watched her go from strength to strength at CCP and believe her deep understanding of how communities thrive and grow will benefit EVE even more in this new role,” said Hilmar Veigar Pétursson, CEO of CCP. “As senior producer, Andie developed and communicated a tremendously inspiring path forward for EVE which, now that she’s at the helm, we are confident will deliver EVE Online to new and exciting places in its second decade.”
“As senior producer, Andie has been responsible for some of EVE’s best expansions,” said Sean Decker, senior vice-president of product development at CCP. “As our ‘fleet commander’ she’s led with a strong and consistent vision for EVE’s future and she’s bested other candidates in our exhaustive search for an executive producer in every imaginable metric.”
“As the executive producer, I will continue to invest in the power of our amazing player community, and in making EVE Online the world’s most ambitious science fiction universe,” said Nordgren. “Being part of the EVE community is the most rewarding experience of my career, and it’s a great honor to be entrusted with its future.”
