EVE Online passes 450,000 sub mark, sales in China “surpass expectations”
CCP has announced EVE Online’s Retribution expansion has helped the game cross the 450,000 subscriber mark.
According to CEO Hilmar Veigar Pétursson, the game has grown every year since it launched in 2003.
The firm also co-announced with TianCity that the game has relaunched in the Chinese market, and after only seven days on sale, subscriptions for EVE Online in China “have surpassed CCP’s expectations.”
“I can’t think of a better way to kick off our celebration of our tenth anniversary than bringing a new era of EVE Online to mainland China, and I welcome them into the world of New Eden as we enter into our second decade of growth and prosperity for EVE,” said Pétursson.
EVE Online: Retribution , the game’s 18th free expansion, launched last week.
