CCP Games officially unveils plans for a new blockchain game set in the EVE Online universe

I guess that’s what it was for a lot of players If EVE Online Developer CCP Games would dive into the blockchain gaming space, wouldn’t it ifespecially since publisher Pearl Abyss cited a blockchain project in a third-quarter earnings call, and CCP Games itself has dived into those waters on a number of occasions.

While CCP CEO Hilmar Petursson has so far kept his promise EVE Gamers that NFT means “Not For Tranquility,” the studio is still tying blockchain to the game’s universe with a new game codenamed Project Awakeninga self-proclaimed AAA project that will be set in the space sandbox world.

“Since its inception, CCP Games’ vision has been to create virtual worlds that are more meaningful than real life,” Petursson said in a statement. “Now, with advancements within the blockchain, we can create a new universe, deeply imbued with our expertise in player agency and autonomy, empowering players to engage in new ways.”

Project Awakening promises to “use smart contract blockchain technology focused on persistence, composability, and truly open third-party development to create a new relationship between virtual worlds and players,” none of which really explains anything about the gameplay itself . Separately, CCP has already secured $40 million in funding and is beginning to hire developers for the game.

We should point out that CCP Games has previously started and canceled several game projects while hailing them as the studio’s future and EVE, so panicking may not be advisable. Yet there is certainly a reason for this Issue at least, if not exactly unimpressed, looks towards CCP.
