CCP hasn’t been blown up by a volcano

Just in case you thought Icelandic developer CCP was in some kind of lava survival situation, you can stop panicking: it isn’t.

The EVE Online creator has told Eurogamer that the amazingly helpful Eyjafjallajökull volcano – the one that’s currently fucking the living shit out of European air travel – is 130km from its office in Reykjavík.

“Volcanic eruptions are a regular occurrence here in Iceland,” said CCP spokesperson Sveinn Jóhannesson Kjarval.

“As such we have been wise enough to locate our major settlements mostly out of harm’s way.”

EVE’s servers are in London, for the record.

So. That crisis there never was? Never happened. If you and your Icelandic brethren could get the magic earth monkeys to switch the big fire off now, Sveinn, that’d be awesome.
