Kakao Games to Publish TERA Developer's New MMO 'Project W' in NA and EU

103 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Kakao Games has secured the publishing rights for Bluehole Studios's new MMORPG Project W in North America and Europe. Interesting thing is Kakao and Bluehole don't even reveal what kind of game Project W is. We just know the game is touted as a "blockbuster PC MMORPG" led by former Aion, TERA and ArcheAge developers, and will start beta test first in South Korea in early 2017.

Hmm, so 2018(cause KR beta is 2017). Guess I can ignore this for a long bit. But the art looks nice. Thx for sharing. 

BTW since they are using Marmoset to render those images, they don't reflect their in game engine. Granted the company that makes that rendering solution also has a render engine for Unity. But that doesn't mean the game is using either of them. Just an FYI. So no in game screens yet.

Might even be 2019 xD

So a team of shady asset thieving developers being published by a rather shady KR publisher...

What the excellent list of fail games xD

 

Is it means BHS going to abandon EME?

First reaction: Little-Girl-Running-Meme-15.jpg

Second reaction: Wait wut? ._. 2017? So they don't even think BDO will survive until then? Because there's no way in hell, even if hell itself was to freeze over, that Kakao could handle more than 1 mmorpg at once :o!

There is like 5-10 people running Kakao's BDO team, not going to be hard to get another small team.

That's where Tytes has probably gone.

RF Online is past its prime, Rohan Origin sucked and is way behind in everything, including graphics.....and Echo of Soul was not developed by Kakao, so don't know where you got most of your info. Furthermore, that journalist post from that website is 2 years old and was never finished.   Most games do stay in development for several years, but they would have to release something pretty dam big in order to get anywhere near BDO's ability.

Last note, what this has to do with BDO? nothing. Good Day sir.

Doesn't matter how graphically beautiful the game is. Doesn't matter what kind of fun mechanics and systems the game might have. Project W will likely follow the same trends as past games making them unplayable for anyone interested in a fair game. I understand companies have the right to bleed gamer's dry to increase their revenue but without a P2P server I won't be interested.

I'd like to keep an open mind regarding other payment models but the way BDO was handled means any promises or statements made regarding their intentions will fall on deaf ears. Daum/Kakao made it clear they wanted to keep the game fair until they decided they wanted money more. I want a game where fair play is more important than extra zeros for the publishers and developers. Games can exist and grow while still being fair regardless of what some people would have us believe.

Image result for fool me once shame on you

They announced months ago they were looking for more developers to help them with future games. So its been public info for a long time that they were going to have multiple games going. Also even before that announcement, it was mentioned in KR press events they were scouting out other games. 

I've actually been waiting to see what they had.
