Project Nova FPS and Project Aurora mobile game details at EVE Vegas
CCP have been quietly working on a number of updates to EVE Online, but they’re also working on a pair of titles set in the EVE universe. As CCP are readying the Lifeblood expansion for this December, there are a number of new titles in the EVE canon being developed.

Project Aurora is set to release in a limited number of territories “in the near future”, with a full release scheduled for 2018.
