Manufacturing on the brand new title, dubbed Challenge Awakening, is separate from Eve On-line. And despite the fact that Challenge Awakening shall be set within the Eve universe, there isn’t any assure that it’s going to have any direct connection. And even essentially be something like Eve On-line.
