marketing bigwig David Reid
recently told Destructoid that 96 percent of EVE Online
players are male. The site also interviewed EVE
senior producer Andie Nordgren
, who opined that the numbers are a byproduct of genre.
"Part of it is due to the theme of the game. Science fiction is an extremely male-dominated domain," she explained. Whatever the reasons, CCP is OK with EVE's
current demographics. "It's not a goal for us as a development team to specifically increase the number of female players," Nordgren said. It's "more an indicator than something [to] strive for."
