Eve Online Surpasses 500,000 Subscriber Goal

Already in its 2nd decade, EvE Online, the MMO going free-to-play, has defied the odds of with its huge subscriber base of over 500,000.

CCP’s CEO, Hilmar Pétursson, in response to the huge milestone issued his thanks to players: “This is a bit of a sentimental moment for all of us at CCP. This is something we’ve strived for against all odds, against all rational, logical expectation of what is reasonable to do in a decade.” He also said that he “hoped to inspire a whole new decade of progress in EvE Online,” and to, “Explore what this concept is about to become. It has long since turned into more than a computer game. Having watched it now for a decade, our best work is ahead of us. I now really believe in my mind and my heart that EvE will outlive us all”
