As the senior producer of EVE Online, CCP's Jon Lander is ultimately in charge of the direction of the nine year old MMO. "I'm the guy who sets where we're going, what we're doing, and how we're going about doing it," Lander tells Gamasutra. "Ultimately, whatever happens in EVE comes down to me."
That's an admission of guilt, in a sense, as Lander has been working on EVE since 2009. CCP ran into problems last year when it laid off staff in the wake of poor management calls about the direction of both the game and the company.
