EVE Online celebrates 54,446 simultaneous users, a new record

EVE Online has rung in the new year right, announcing a brand new peak concurrency record of 54,446 users logged into the expansive universe of New Eden. Thinking of having 3,000 players on a single server is mind boggling enough, but 54,446? Color us very impressed.

The announcement was a very subtle one, only appearing on the game's official Facebook page so far, but CCP's own server graph and the user data collected by third-party website eve-offline.net confirm the announcement. Congratulations to CCP and their very impressive server technology for pulling off such a feat.

So guys... speaking of new year resolutions... about that Walking In Stations thing...
