There’s been rumblings of an EVE Online television show for a couple of years now, but at the recent EVE Fanfest 2016, Hilmar Veigar Pétursson, CCP Games’ CEO confirmed that they’re actively working on an adaptation. reported that at the convention, Pétursson believed that they had some traction on a television show, and that “We’re actually exploring that with Ridley Scott’s production company and Baltasar Kormákur, an Icelandic director”.

Kormákur was attached to the earlier reports of the television show from 2013, although it’s interesting to see that Ridley Scott’s Scott Free Productions is involved - this could be excellent news, as they’ve done some outstanding television productions, including Man in the High Castle, Halo: Nightfall and others.

The EVE Online world is also ripe for possibilities, with 21,000 years of human history to draw from, not to mention some incredible battles that have played out in recent years.
