"out of harm's way."
The troublesome volcano is 130km from Reykjavik, the Iceland capitol home to CCP HQ. The team add they're "ironically far less affected".
"We want to assure you all that we are in no danger whatsoever, and that things are running smoothly here at CCP's HQ," said Sveinn Jóhannesson Kjarval of CCP Games, reports .
"There hasn't been any impact on our day-to-day operations, including the production of our next EVE Online expansion, Tyrannis. The servers hosting the EVE universe are located in London so they are not affected by the fire and brimstone in any way."
"Volcanic eruptions are a regular occurrence here in Iceland," he continued, "and as such we have been wise enough to locate our major settlements mostly out of harm's way."
Aside from being 130km away from the volcano, there are strong mountainous ridges that lie in between keeping the Reykjavík populace and EVE's future nice and safe.
"Also, due to the fact that the high winds mostly always blow to the east, we here in Reykjavík are ironically far less affected by the fallout of ash than the rest of northern Europe (sorry about that, Northern Europe!)," said Jóhannesson Kjarval.
"The most trouble we've suffered so far is having to plot courses half way around the world for a few employees stuck in Europe on business trips."
EVE Online expansion Tyrannis releases May 18th which allows players to exploit, build and even control entire planets for the first time in the MMO. Do you EVE Online?
