CCP

CCP was founded in 1997 with the vision of harnessing the communication potential of the Internet and the expressive artistic opportunities born out of ever more sophisticated technology to create new and unique form of collaborative entertainment in the form of virtual worlds.

The 2003 launch of EVE Online was the moment when everything involved in that vision clicked together and became a reality. Massively multiplayer games are virtual realities. They are about creating experiences unattainable in any other form of media. A virtual reality is about true human interaction and true human emotions in a living and evolving world. It is CCP’s belief that massively multiplayer games are the biggest revolution in computer gaming history and CCP is dedicated to make the dream of a true virtual reality come into being. CCP encourages respect, dialog, interaction and cooperation on a deeper level between its employees and customers than is common in online games. By this and through this CCP provides a unique way for improving the quality of its products and creates an inspiring and challenging environment for talent to thrive. CCP is comprised of intrepid pioneers willing to push their talents to the limits to create award winning virtual worlds and online games. It is a team that possesses the drive and ability to break through the boundaries of conventional wisdom and hold fast in frontiers that others fear to tread. As a result, we have built a team comprised of 20 nationalities, speaking 30 languages and from every walk of life all sharing the same trait, the capacity to successfully accomplish what many have told them was "impossible"​ to do. Those who welcome the tides of change, venture fearlessly into the unknown and bear the abilities necessary to overcome what others consider to be impossible should seek out CCP. Ours is the adventure you have been looking for.
