[EVE Online] I just read this over on the EVE forums. In just one day (granted it is open beta) China surpassed all previous concurrent records for EVE Online. The previous record was around 26,000 people playing in a single gameworld.
CCP Games, the game’s Icelandic developer, today announced that more than 30,000 users were concurrently playing in a single gameworld, which it claims is a new world record. In the first day, more than 200,000 people registered for the game. The Chinese version of the game is run by Optic Communications and runs independently of the Western edition of EVE Online.
June 14 Update: 33,000 PCU (Peak Concurrent Users) and now up to more than 360,000 registrations.
