At Sixth Birthday,  EVE Online  Reaches 300,000 Users

At Sixth Birthday, EVE Online Reaches 300,000 Users

May 6, 2009 | By Leigh Alexander




As CCP's space MMO EVE Online reaches its sixth anniversary today, the company announces that its subscriber base has reached 300,000 users.

This is a 22 percent increase in just the last five months -- driven largely by the recent Apocrypha expansion. The new userbase milestone doesn't include trial accounts, CCP says.

All of the game's users interact together on a single-shard server, one of EVE's defining traits. With today's announcement also comes the news that EVE saw its peak concurrent user record broken three times so far this year -- the new record is 53,850 players at once on the same single server.

"That is exponential growth," says the company in a statement celebrating EVE's birthday. "We couldn't think of a better birthday present than having more people playing EVE Online than ever before. It is another sweet reminder of EVE's boundless potential."
