CCP Games has announced that EVE Online has passed 450,000 subscribers for the first time in its history. The game launched nearly 10 years ago. The games 18th expansion, EVE Online: Retribution, helped push the game above the mark.
"Because of the tremendous effort of the team at CCP, we can proudly say that EVE Online has grown every year since its launch in 2003," added Pétursson.
CCP Games also announced that the game has been relaunched in China and the relaunch has been a success. The game relaunched just one week ago and the number of subscriptions "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 Hilmar Veigar Pétursson, CEO of CCP.
