CCP’s Hilmar Pètursson will be one of the keynote speakers at GDC Europe in August.
The CEO’s speech is titled “CCP: Winning the War”, which discusses the company’s success stemming from near obscurity to producing one of the largest MMOs out there, EVE Online.
“GDC Europe is gearing up to be one of the industry’s most essential events,” said Petursson. “I am honored to have this opportunity to share some of the valuable lessons CCP has learned with such a prestigious audience.”
Pètursson will also provide an exclusive first look at CCP’s latest project, which is currently in pre-production and could be any number of titles the firm is working on.
More than likely it’s either the MMO World of Darkness or the upcoming first-person shooter set in New Eden.
