MMORPG.com's Garrett Fuller looks at the year ahead for CCP, the developers of EVE Online, Dust 514 and the reported World of Darkness MMO.
Laying quietly in the Icelandic mists, CCP remained one of the major players in MMOs throughout 2009. With EVE Online continuing its growth in the sci-fi sandbox universe the company is now branching out into new projects. World of Darkness and DUST 514 are two exciting games that CCP is working on for the future. The question is will we see either one in 2010?
CCP announced DUST 514 in 2009 and fans of EVE as well as gamers in general got excited about a shooter game set in the EVE universe. The dark and gritty space world of EVE has a lot to offer players and getting out of the ship for a while and gunning down opponents on foot could be a new experience. We don't know a whole lot about the game yet, save for what was revealed at this year's Fan Fest event. For now we know that DUST will have the brutal ground combat and will interface, at least in a limited way with EVE. The vehicles in the game also seem exciting and combining the RTS and FPS genres will give players some fights to remember. 2010 will be a year of announcements for DUST 514 and hopefully we will see a possible release date for the game at some point in the first half of the year.
