Venture capitalists pour $30M into CCP’s VR plans


If you were worried about the health of EVE Online studio CCP after its recent sale of White Wolf and its associated IP, well, worry a little less. The company just announced that it’s raised $30 million from investors intended to “drive innovation in VR as the technology begins to transform the entertainment industry.”

Investors include global venture capital firm New Enterprise Associates and private equity firm Novator Partners LLP; a pair of partners from the former will be joining CCP’s board of directors.

“We’ve been admirers of CCP for quite some time,” says Harry Weller, one of those partners, in a press release today. “Their legacy with EVE Online and early investments in VR have put them in a leadership position, and we want to partner with them to further build on the great platform they have already established.”

CCP’s plans for VR include EVE Valkyrie, a VR-based dogfighter set in the EVE universe, and Gunjack, a VR-based mobile title.
