Cancelled Subs Could Cost CCP $1 Million

Cancelled Subs Could Cost CCP $1 Million - EVE Online - MMORPG.com

According to a report published at Develop Online, EVE Online developer CCP Games could lost nearly a million dollars due to cancelled subscriptions. A document has surfaced with the names of over five thousand players indicating they will be cancelling their EVE subscription over recent documents focused around the company's microtransaction revenue model.

At the time of going to press, some 5,257 accounts are due to be cancelled in protest. An annual subscription in Eve Online costs €131, meaning the absconding players would represent a loss near $1 million – though the number is likely to climb further.

CCP Games made more than $46 million in 2008, according to financial statements.

The expected mass-cancellation of Eve Online accounts comes as CCP Games looks to recover from a humiliating backlash regarding its microtransaction plans.

The "cancellation list" is available for viewing on Google Docs.
