According to Korean sources, video game developer NCSOFT are currently working on a new mobile MMORPG IP to add to their ever-growing roster of games in that genre.
The company is currently in the process of recruiting personnel to get involved with the development for the unnamed project, with positions such as planning team leader, level designer, animator and a scenario team all up for employment. Details as to what the new mobile MMORPG will be are yet to be disclosed, but it is expected to be a brand new IP from NCSOFT.
In addition to this, the developers will also be working on a variety of new MMORPGs, working with the likes of Aion and Blade & Soul, as well as new mobile-based RPGs and new online MMORPGs that have a heavy focus on action.
Hopefully in the near future we will hear more from the role-play creating giants as to what they are working on. For those who may be unfamiliar with NCSOFT, the South Korean company was founded in March 1997 by T.J. Kim, after which it launched its first game Lineage a year later. They are also responsible for the likes of City of Heroes, Wildstar, Guild Wars, Aion, Blade & Soul and Master X Master to name a few.
Time will tell as to what they bring to the table next, but given their pedigree of creating such established titles within the role-playing genre, the prospect of a new mobile-based MMORPG is certainly one that will be exciting to many.
