Eve Online dev CCP Games is on the selling block, says new report

Citing "people with knowledge of the matter," Bloomberg reported Friday that Iceland’s CCP Games, best known for Eve Online, is exploring the possibility of selling off the company.

Citing "people with knowledge of the matter," Bloomberg reported Friday that Iceland’s CCP Games, best known for Eve Online, is exploring the possibility of selling off the company after receiving interest from possible suitors.

If CCP were to change hands, it’s unclear what that would mean for the direction of one of the most unique MMOs on the market. Eve Online has been able to carve itself a unique niche in the MMO space, and is known for hosting gigantic battles involving thousands of players at one time. The game maker also recently made moves into the virtual reality space with Eve Gunjack and Eve: Valkyrie.

Bloomberg said CCP is considering other "strategic options" aside from an outright sale of the company, which could sell for up to $955 million, according to Bloomberg’s sources.
