Long-in-the-works EVE Online FPS Project Nova is officially cancelled

EVE Online studio CCP Games has confirmed its troubled EVE-themed multiplayer shooter Project Nova is officially cancelled, although work on a new sci-fi shooter, with expanded scope, will continue at its London studio.

Project Nova was initially unveiled in 2016 as a spiritual successor to CCP’s long-defunct free-to-play PS3 shooter Dust 514. All went largely silent after that, however, and it wasn’t until October 2018 that more on the game – said to offer a blend of “tactical co-op PvE and explosive PvP modes, with a strong emphasis on mastery and strategy” – was finally revealed.

Just one month later, though, CCP announced it would “return to the drawing board” with Project Nova, telling fans that the “gameplay experience in its current form does not live up to our original vision and would not achieve our ambitious goals for this project.”
