Black Desert Online developer Pearl Abyss has announced that it will acquire CCP Games, the creator of EVE Online, integrating the company’s extensive development and publishing expertise into Pearl Abyss’ operations “for all current and future projects”.
Pearl Abyss CEO Robin Jung stated, “We are thrilled to have CCP Games join our team as Black Desert Online continues to branch out globally. CCP is a seasoned publisher with over 15 years of digital distribution experience and know-how. They have done an incredible job of engaging and maintaining their playerbase, which we aim to learn from and hope to integrate natively into Pearl Abyss’ general practices across all our games. I am confident CCP’s reputable IP and expertise in global publishing will help reaffirm our company’s dedication to developing and servicing the world’s best MMORPGs.”
The deal outlines that CCP Games will continue to “operate independently as a developer with studios in Reykjavik, London and Shanghai”, yet the news has not met with many positive notes from EVE Online‘s wider community.
