NetEase Games in association with CCP Games developed EVE Echoes, is set to release in mid-August, 2020. NetEase Games are known for adventure game Cyber Hunter which was released last year. Eve Echoes is a brand-new next-generation sci-fi MMO game set in an alternate universe of New Eden that brings the authentic EVE Online experience to mobile devices. EVE Echoes will also include basic tutorials for new players to advance and enhance their space-faring experience. Pre-registration for the game begins from today on Google Play and App Store. Or you can head over to the official website and make the pre-registration.
It has been a titanic effort from hundreds of people in the development team that could make it possible for Eve Echoes release in mid-august 2020.

In the special stream on their official YouTube channel (the dev stream is attached below), the developers said that they are upgrading and adjusting the server for the players in order to make sure lots of new users join the game.
What made them go for the mobile version of Eve Online?
Wei Su, Senior Producer at NetEase said that they wanted to expand the influence of the game and also attract new players. In order to make new players experience the charm of the game, it was necessary to look at mobile gamers. Though it was challenging, they are honored to take it. During the open beta launch in December 2019, the server was crashed because they underestimated the number of players. Now they are completely prepared. They are currently working on the feedback received from the last open beta test and actively working on new features.
