An EVE Online television show is in the works

Practice makes something!

MMOs and television series might not seem like two tastes that go great together, but it makes more than a little sense for EVE Online. Considering the extant lore of the game and the epic control wars that have been waged across the galaxy (and are still being waged right now), there’s every reason to think that people who might not play the game would like to watch the story. If you agree, you’ll be happy to know that Hilmar Veigar Petursson, CEO of CCP Games, recently stated that such a series is indeed in the works.

Petursson is quick to point out that such projects take a very long time to happen, but the company is currently working with Icelandic director Baltasar Kormakur and Scott Free Productions. Only time will tell whether or not the game does indeed make the jump to the small screen, but if you’re one of the people who prefers reading about EVE over playing it, you may soon be able to watch the stories unfold.

Zennie MrEllis I’ve played EvE, I’m making fun of the names I see. Imagine them in a TV show. Ease back on the literal.

Zennie Pandalulz So I did, which leads back to my comment.  This book sounds (having not read any of it, or having examples of the actual content) like it would make a great show on the History channel, which honestly, a fake history documentary sounds like a fun idea if you’re in on the joke, but not sure it would have mainstream appeal.  Which also brings a question to how they will tell the stories.  Will they bring in the fourth wall stuff, all the subterfuge happening outside the game, and then write it in world, or will it be out of world, or some other way?  I want it to be awesome and want them to do a great job, this is really just me spitballing questions that I hope they’ve thought of and already have answers for.

TheDonDude Like dude, I can quite probably spit an episode or two just based on my own stories, and I’m only 3-4 yrs old player. One of many.
