CCP Games, an independent MMO game studio, has announced today that their sci-fi MMO, Eve Online, has surpassed the 500,000 subscriber mark worldwide after having been around for over ten years. This will be the first time in the game's history.
“Ten years after release, it is incredibly inspiring that, through a lot of hard work from our EVE Online team, we are crossing the half-million subscriber mark,” said Hilmar Veigar Pétursson, CEO of CCP. “For me, this is a true testament that EVE can live on forever, as long as we do right by her. We have not come to this point alone; millions of players have helped push us to this milestone. I now know in my mind what I previously only believed in my heart: that EVE will outlive us all.”
CCP will honor Eve Online's tenth anniversary throughout the year under a unified "Second Decade" theme. The year long celebration will kick off in late April with the Eve Fanfest, being held in Reykjavik, Iceland. The official birthday of Eve Online is May 6th and will also be the official start of the second decade of Eve Universe.
"Throughout the year, CCP will be supporting player gatherings around the world and holding in-game events to further the storyline of the combined universe as it continues to grow."
