With new offices in Georgia, CCP is increasing its presence across the pond, reinforcing its dedication to US players in addition to the EU crowd. To clarify, CCP previously had North American headquarters over at Gwinnett County; this move is to the City of Decatur in DeKalb County. Today’s CCP PR states, “This move is expected to create 150 new jobs over three years, bringing the company’s U.S. staff total to 300 by 2013.”

Georgian Governor Nathan Deal was very excited about EvE Online developer’s latest decision:

“For digital entertainment companies, Georgia brings to bear a competitive set of resources for this industry that makes our state a strategic home for game developers like CCP,”

“It is also encouraging to see an existing Georgia company expand and take full advantage of our state’s progressive business atmosphere, and enhance its commitment to Georgia.”

Over at CCP, the company’s President Mike Tinney explained the motive behind this big move,

“Decatur offers the perfect blend of big city accessibility with a hometown feel that we were looking for,”

“Georgia’s financial climate combined with Decatur’s social climate provide the ideal conditions for continued growth.”
