EVE Online – China server closure confirmed by local publisher

After months of rumors, Chinese publisher Tiancity finally announced the closure of EVE Online in the world’s largest gaming market on 30 September. In a long and heartfelt message, Tiancity said the decision to stop the service was actually agreed with developer CCP Games a year ago. The China server of EVE Online first launched back in December 2012, giving it a record of nearly 6 years of service. However, Tiancity also mentioned that the “story of EVE Online in China will not end”, and went on to confirm it is working with CCP Games and a “new force”. It seems a new publisher is set to relaunch the game in China.
