  CCP and White Wolf Join Forces for Cross-Media Projects

CCP, maker of popular sci-fi online game EVE Online has announced a merger with White Wolf, maker of the famous Vampire: The Masquerade tabletop role-playing game and other series. Each arm of the new company will continue to operate under its own name. According to CCP, "The combined company will introduce new online and offline gaming products across the science-fiction, horror and fantasy genres... [CCP] will be creating a multi-player game based on White Wolf's popular World of Darkness setting, along with other projects already in the pipeline. The merger will accelerate CCP's brand development of EVE Online as White Wolf will bring their expertise to the creation of EVE Online strategy guides, collectible card games, role-playing games, novels, and miniatures." Seems like a chocolate and peanut-butter combination to me.

I'm sure the official World of Darkness online game will be as big a hit in the massively-multiplayer scene as it was on tabletops around the world. The original series spawned lots of spin-offs and imitators--in fact, there's an upcoming MMOG called Dark World Online that looks like its ripped directly from World of Darkness--given White Wolf's protective stance, I smell a lawsuit in the future.
