A spinoff online shooter set in the EVE Online universe is in the works. The game is being developed by EVE Online creator CCP Games alongside porting and co-development studio Sperasoft. More details will be released in the coming weeks.
What do we know about the upcoming EVE Online shooter?
Right now, we don't know a huge amount about the game. CCP Games London game director Allen Edwards says the shooter will be a "rock-solid, action-oriented gameplay experience with stunningly beautiful worlds". Edwards says the team at CCP is "delighted" to be working alongside Sperasoft on an "unannounced online shooter set in the EVE IP". We don't yet know exactly which part of the EVE world the shooter will take place in.

For Sperasoft's part, CCO Denis Larkin says the team is "excited" to partner up with CCP and share in its mission to "create immersive virtual worlds". Larkin goes on to say Sperasoft is focused on "delivering cutting-edge solutions for [CCP Games] and gameplay innovations for their fans". For more updates on this game, you'll have to keep an eye out on CCP Games' official website, as the studio says it will be revealing the first details about this project there "in the not-too-distant future".
What can we expect from developer Sperasoft?
Sperasoft describes itself as a "leading game development company", based in Silicon Valley and holding development studios in the USA, Poland, and Russia. Sperasoft has worked as a co-developer or porting studio on major triple-A titles like Halo Infinite, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, and Riot Games' League of Legends. It's not entirely clear whether CCP Games will be leading the bulk of development and Sperasoft will be contributing, or whether this will be a game developed from the ground up by Sperasoft. We'll have more for you on this as soon as we get it. In the meantime, you can download EVE Online for free on PC via Steam.
