CCP was founded in the summer of 1997 with the goal of becoming a leading massively multiplayer game company. With the launch of EVE Online in May 2003, CCP has established itself as one of the leading companies in the field, winning numerous awards and receiving critical acclaim worldwide.
CCP is dedicated to the development of cutting edge massively multiplayer games. CCP is founded on the principle of pushing the envelope and breaking new grounds on all levels. CCP is not about making copycat products with compromised quality. CCP is about making dreams become a reality.
Massively multiplayer games are virtual realities. They are about creating experiences unattainable in any other form of media. A virtual reality is about true human interaction and true human emotions in a living and evolving world. It is CCP's belief that massively multiplayer games are the biggest revolution in computer gaming history and CCP is dedicated to make the dream of a true virtual reality come into being.
CCP's mission is to attract and retain customers by providing top quality online entertainment. CCP does this by establishing and nurturing a trust relationship with customers both in terms of quality of content as well as quality of service.
CCP encourages respect, dialog, interaction and cooperation on a deeper level between its employees and customers than is common in online games. By this and through this CCP provides a unique way for improving the quality of its products and creates an inspiring and challenging environment for talent to thrive.
Known affectionately to its locals as "The Toon", the city of Newcastle is steeped in 2000 years of rich history.
The industrial roots of the city lie in heavy industry and ship building. Today the city is largely recognised as a major business and cultural centre, and the region as a whole has developed into a major hub for games development in the UK.
The city and surrounding areas boast some of the most inspirational and iconic architecture in the North East, such as The Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, The Millennium Bridge, The Angel of the North and the Sage Gateshead, which plays host to the GameHorizon Conference. The eclectic mix of both historical and modern landmarks and architecture in this vibrant cosmopolitan city, mean that visitors will always find something to see or do.
