Pearl Abyss, developer of the MMO Black Desert Online, has just acquired Eve Online creators CCP Games, as announced by the latter today, with CCP Games continuing to work independently while also integrating their own experience into Pearl Abyss' operations.
Pearl Abyss CEO Robin Jung said: "We are thrilled to have CCP Games join our team as Black Desert Online continues to branch out globally. CCP is a seasoned publisher with over 15 years of digital distribution experience and know-how. They have done an incredible job of engaging and maintaining their playerbase, which we aim to learn from and hope to integrate natively into Pearl Abyss' general practices across all our games. I am confident CCP's reputable IP and expertise in global publishing will help reaffirm our company's dedication to developing and servicing the world's best MMORPGs."
Is this a good acquisition for Pearl Abyss?
