CCP, the developers behind the popular space-themed MMORPG called Eve Online, has netted themselves an additional $30 million in funding to make more virtual reality games. Currently the company has two virtual reality games EVE: Valkyrie and Gunjack, both of which are for different platforms.
EVE: Valkyrie will be launching on the Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR early next year, while Gunjack is an upcoming arcade shooter that will be arriving for the Samsung Gear VR later this month. The additional funding is so that CCP can “drive innovation” in the VR sector. As of right now though, these are the only two virtual reality games the company has publicly announced.
We believe VR will revolutionize not just video games, but the wider technology and media industry as a whole. We were there at the beginning, and this investment will give us strength to maintain our leading development efforts. – Hilmar Veigar Pétursson, CEO of CCP
Should CCP announce any other new virtual reality games in the near future, we will post an update.
