CCP Games has successfully secured $40 million in funding to embark on a major new project in the form of a triple-A blockchain game based on the Eve universe. Given the significance of this project, CCP Games sought external funding beyond its owner, Pearl Abyss. The funding round was led by Andreessen Horowitz (A16z), with notable contributions from Makers Fund, Bitkraft, Kingsway Capital, Nexon, Hashed, and other participants. With this financing, CCP Games can now use the findings of its R&D team to develop a cutting-edge triple-A title utilizing blockchain technology. By implementing blockchain technology through smart contracts designed for persistence, composability, and open third-party development, CCP Games aims to create an entirely new relationship between virtual worlds and players.
