It’s too easy to forget just how audacious CCP is as a company and just how successful it has been in pushing the envelope.
EVE Online has had continued growth across its 10 year history (as of May 6th) and now boasts over 500,000 subscribers. Those who are quick to detract (because, let’s face it, some people just do) would say there are bigger games; which is true. However, no other MMO has seen such consistent advancement in its player base across such an extended period.
Joining EVE in the New Eden universe is DUST 514, now in open beta on the PlayStation Network for the PS3. DUST, and its unique existence as a game within itself and as a living companion to EVE, exemplifies how CCP doesn’t just walk off the beaten track, it blasts away from it.
I joined Jon Lander, executive producer of EVE Online and Halldor Fannar, Chief technical officer for CCP Games to look back on the past 10 years and discern what is next as CCP enters its second decade of exploration.
