At Sixth Birthday, EVE Online Reaches 300,000 Users

As CCP's space MMO EVE Online reaches its sixth anniversary today, the company announces that its subscriber base has reached 300,000 users -- and that the game's seen 53,850 concurrent users at peak.
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."
