CCP Games raises $40 million for game integrated with blockchain.
CCP Games has raised $40 million to develop a Web3 game in its EVE Online universe, integrating blockchain technology and smart contracts. The new game will be a standalone title with attention paid to third-party development and data persistence. It is unclear if the game will interact with public blockchain networks like Ethereum.
Epic Games is also looking to launch nearly 20 third-party, crypto-enabled games on its online store over the next year, although none will be developed or published by Epic itself. The potential for blockchain and NFTs to revolutionize the gaming industry is enormous, and the emergence of big names like CCP Games and Epic Games into the Web3 gaming space marks a significant shift in the industry, with more innovative and creative games likely to emerge in the future.
