You don’t get too far in business without having aspirations, I suppose, and CCP Games CEO Hilmar Petursson is certainly not lacking for those for his studio. In an interview with Newsweek, Petursson talks about how both the company and EVE Online have grown, how the pandemic has affected business, and the general growth of Iceland’s games industry.
At one point, Petursson is asked what’s next for the studio, which draws an answer about making inroads into both mobile gaming and additional regions across the globe like Asia, as well as work on new games:
“We want to go further into other markets, with Asia posing as a great prospect for us, hence our partnerships. Mobile games are another expansion area that we are working on, making a mobile version of EVE with EVE Echoes and even forming a mobile connection to the PC game via the EVE Portal companion app. We are probably going to be making more mobile games at some point as well. Last but not least, we are developing a new online sci-fi shooter game and are planning to market it in the upcoming years. We are expanding more broadly across regions and more deeply in each region, with deep localization efforts, as well as in other mediums, like mobile.”
The interview itself is pretty compact, but for those who are curious about all things CCP, it will likely prove an insightful read all the same.
