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.
Black Desert is the first MMORPG Kakao publishes in NA and EU, and obviously they have the ambition to become bigger in the west. In South Korea, Kakao has already been one of the biggest game publishers with MMORPGs like Black Desert, Echo of Soul, RF Online, and Rohan Origin in operation.
