Long ago in the frigid north, Vikings descended with wrath upon continental Europe, striking fear in those they pillaged. The story's a bit different now, of course. In August, Icelandic developer CCP should receive a significantly warmer reception at a developers conference in Germany when the company announces its upcoming project.

Reykjavik-based CCP is sending its CEO, Hilmar Veigar Petursson, to unveil a new project at the Game Developers Conference in Cologne, Germany. The conference takes place from August 17 to 19, just before the massive GamesCom expo kicks off in the same city along the Rhine.

CCP is the developer of EVE Online, the successful 2003 sci-fi massively multiplayer online game. A study by Screen Digest reports that EVE Online was the fourth-most-lucrative massively multiplayer online game of 2008, behind Runescape, Club Penguin, and World of Warcraft.

Currently, there are no details on whether CCP's new project is an iteration of its EVE franchise or an entirely new endeavor.
