EVE Online Reaches 500,000 Registered Players

Start of game's second decade sees most explosive subscriber growth in its history
CCP Games today announced that their sci-fi MMO EVE Online had surpassed the 500,000 subscriber mark worldwide for the first time in the game’s history. The milestone continues ten consecutive years of subscriber growth and follows the December 4 release of EVE Online: Retribution, the game's 18th free expansion and its most successful ever.
In January, CCP's DUST 514 a free-to-play massively multiplayer online first-person shooter, went into open beta and became available for free download exclusively to PlayStation 3 users worldwide. DUST 514 shares the same, real-time universe as EVE Online and player corporations can coordinate attacks between the two games. This marked the first time two games from different genres have been linked together into one, massive online experience.
