Icelandic studio CCP Games is being threatened with as much as $1 million in lost subscription revenues, as uproar over the company’s microtransactions policy intensifies.

At the time of going to press, some 5,257 accounts are due to be cancelled in protest. An annual subscription in Eve Online costs €131.40, meaning the absconding players would represent a loss near $1 million – though the number is likely to climb further.
